About the Pace of Climate Change: Write a Report to the President
Khadjavi, Lily
College Mathematics Journal, v44 n5 p428-432 Nov 2013
This project allows students to better understand the scope and pace of climate change by conducting their own analyses. Using data readily available from NASA and NOAA, students can apply their knowledge of regression models (or of the modeling of rates of change). The results lend themselves to a writing assignment in which students demonstrate their understanding by explaining their findings to a non-expert.
