Treagust, David F.
This module is intended to increase the students' comprehension of costs, in terms of money and in energy, involved in various modes of transportation. Four main inquiries are covered in the module: (1) money saved by car pooling to school; (2) reductions in fuel consumption possible without car pooling; (3) comparisons of inter-city and urban transportation modes; and (4) vehicle maintenance to reduce fuel consumption. Two to three class periods are required to complete the module. (Author/RE)
