Energy Cost of Engine Idling part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Ben Fusaro
This is an open-ended but elementary modeling exercise about idling energy behaviors and impacts.

How much energy do you save by doubling insulation? part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Joseph Skufca
Students will be provided the governing equation for steady state heat transfer across a surface. They will use that equation to explore the effect of changing the insulation value on the amount of energy used.

Simple Population Space Usage part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities
Bill Bauldry
Students find current values for world and US populations, the area of Texas, and the size of the average house in the USA. Students then look at ratios to assess land usage.
