Antarctica ice melting- Mathematical modeling lesson 2016 1081 Abstract: This lesson uses mathematical modeling to approximate the rise in sea level caused by the Antarctica ice sheet melting. Students must formulate questions and assumptions, compute answers, interpret in the context of the problem and then val...
Brita 2016 287 Abstract: This student activity sheet is designed to guide students through the mathematical modeling process as they investigate the impact of plastic water bottles on the environment. Students must formulate questions and assumptions, compute answe...
Plethora of Plastics: Lesson Plan 2016 419 Abstract: Students will engage in the mathematical modeling process by using statistics about a real world situation to build and assess linear and exponential functions to see when each model is appropriate. Students will investigate the growth of p...
