Replacing Household Appliances: Refrigerator part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Krys Stave, University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV)

In this problem, students compare the energy use of their existing refrigerator with a new refrigerator.

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.

Water conservation part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Holly Partridge

Small amounts of water in one home dripping from a faucet can add up to huge monetary and resource losses

Bakken Oil From Shale, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Global Oil Economics part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Robert McConnell

Students work with oil production data to assess the environmental impact, and economic controls, of oil production and consumption.

Solar panel statistical tests part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Owen Byer

In this activity, students will determine whether there is a statistically significant difference in the number of watts of power produced on individual solar panels at Bryn Mawr College.

Arctic Sea Ice Extent part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Bill Bauldry

Student teams investigate Arctic Sea Ice by analyzing actual data and making predictions. A worthwhile extension is to predict the first year that the Arctic Ocean will be ice free.

How Big is Your Breakfast Footprint? part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Ben Galluzzo, Shippensburg University

Calculation of a carbon footprint resulting from common breakfast choices illustrates the importance of contextualization.

The Costs of Your Commute: Your Money, Your Time, and the Earth part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Charlie Buehrle

This activity has students investigate their own cost, CO2 output, and time for commuting. They then compare their commute to an environmentally conscious alternative by using comparable metrics.
