Getting to the Point: Exploring Tectonic Motion at Point Reyes National Seashore part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students use foundational math to calculate such earthquake-related numbers as fault displacement rate and earthquake recurrence interval associated with the San Andreas Fault at Point Reyes National Seashore.

Yellowstone! A National Park on a Hot Spot part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students use foundational math to study the velocity of the North American Plate over the hot spot, the volume of eruptive materials from it, and the recurrence interval of the cataclysmic eruptions.

Dunes, Boxcars, and Ball Jars: Mining the Great Lakes Shores part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students estimate the volume of sand in Hoosier Slide, a large dome-shaped dune quarried away in the 1920s from what is now Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. They also estimate the number of boxcars to carry the sand, and the number of Ball jars produced from it.

Shifting Sands: Quantifying Shoreline and Dune Migration at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students use weighted averages and data from air photos from 1939 to 2005 to calculate the rate of retreat of the shoreline and the advance of the front of dunes along the shoreline.

A Percentage Stroll through Norris Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students calculate percentages and percent differences to compare various measures of fumaroles, mud pots, hot springs and geysers in this introduction to hydrothermal features at Yellowstone NP.

Salmon Use of Geomorphically Restored Streams at Point Reyes National Seashore part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students work with salmon-trace streambed data to study whether removal of a spawning run barrier was effective

Introduction to Hazard and Risk: Part 2 part of Examples

Students continue their introduction to Excel by building spreadsheets that estimate the risk of a major earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone to Benton County, Oregon.

How often do earthquakes occur? part of Examples

Students use spreadsheet tables and charts to explore the relationship between earthquake magnitude and frequency.

Something is Askew at Mammoth Cave National Park part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum/Geology of National Parks module. Students use the geometric mean and multiplicative standard deviation to examine the right-skewed distribution of nutrient concentrations in water-quality data at Mammoth Cave National Park.

Nitrate Levels in the Rock Creek Park Watershed, Washington DC, 1: Measures of Central Tendency part of Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module/Geology of National Parks course. Students examine the histogram of a positively skewed data set and calculate its mean, median and mode.
