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

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.

For more about the Habitable Planet course, see its home page:
