Biking vs Driving part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Deirdre Smeltzer

How much difference would biking to work one day per week make?

How Biodiverse is Lake Superior? An exercise in proportions. part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Stephanie Kajpust

Students use critical thinking and algebra to measure and evaluate the biodiversity in Lake Superior.

Salt Marshes: estimation techniques using basic algebra and geometry part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Yelena Meadows; Sharareh Nikbakht

The activity allows for learning about salt marshes ecosystem and practicing of basic math in estimations.

Trawl Data Exploration in Multivariable Calculus part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Kris Green

This activity is based on exploring the data collected from all trawls around the Chincoteague Bay from 2005 - 2014. Students can construct their own contour diagrams as they cross section the data based on their own choices. This database could also be used to support similar activities in statistics or graph theory.

Fitting and Estimating Rates of Change in the Functions Underlying Earth's Bio-Development Over Time part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Alan Ableson; Jennifer Bready

What is happening in our world? How has the temperature changed? Have oxygen and carbon dioxide levels changed? How does this effect biodiversity? In this lab, we will investigate the changes in these four variables over various time periods to see how they relate.

Who Goes There? Estimating Ocean Populations in Chincoteague Bay part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Maria Hernandez; Itnuit Janovitz-Freireich

In this activity students use data to: rank species on the food chain, compute energy flow ratios and estimate fish populations in the Chincoteague Bay. Students also discuss the impact of the ecosystem and humans on this population, with an extension activity calculating the biodiversity of the system.

Shift in life expectancy part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Holly Partridge

Determining the shift in expected life span over a century and the social and environmental impact

A Monarchy Deposed: The Demise of the Monarch Butterfly part of 2012 Sustainability in Math Workshop:Activities

Daniel Abel

Monarch butterflies (scientific name: Danaus plexippus) migrate annually to forests in central Mexico from Canada and California. Those surviving the 1200 - 2800 mile migration overwinter in Mexico. In this activity, students will learn about the conservation biology of monarch butterflies, threats to their survival, the implications of their potential extinction, and ways to protect the species.
