Up in Smoke.
McGuire, Thomas
Science Teacher, v58 n3 p33-37 Mar 1991
An activity that introduces the concept of chaos to students is presented. Smoke rising from burning incense is used to represent changes in atmospheric flow. The lab, involving fluid dynamics, avoids mathematical models to highlight deterministic chaos within nature itself. Reproducible pages are provided. (KR)
