Deepwater Horizon Incident
http://response.restoration.noaa.gov/deepwaterhorizon/
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has
put together a site full of resources about the Deepwater
Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. In the left margin, choose "Information for: Students and Teachers" to access data sets as well as articles for the classroom, such as a Q&A that puts large numbers into context, entitled "What's the Story on Oil Spills?
Habitable Planet Interactive Labs
http://www.learner.org/courses/envsci/interactives/index.php
Use this set of interactive labs from the Annenberg Media
course "The Habitable Planet" to explore the intersection of
math and science. Labs tie together common concepts around the
themes of:
 Carbon
 Demographics
 Disease
 Ecology
 Energy
Each lab consists of a simulator with a series of questions to
think about as you explore scenarios, as well as a data table
to help students track their data as they progress.
