Air Pollution: A Local and Global Problem
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|Students investigate the problem of air pollution in a given location and research possible solutions using a variety of tools (laboratory technology, Internet resources, multimedia technology, etc.). Mathematics goals include estimating, making, and using measurements of objects, quantities and relationships and determining acceptable levels of accuracy; and collecting, organizing and analyzing data using statistical methods, predicting results, and interpreting uncertainty using concepts of probability. The site contains a summary, scenario, student pages, and useful Internet links, as well as a list of national and Illinois state standards addressed, and assessment rubrics.
