Lazaros, Edward J.; Hua, David
Tech Directions, v72 n1 p16-20 Aug 2012
In this activity, students will develop an understanding of the economic impact of technology by estimating the cost savings of power management strategies in the classroom. Students will learn how to adjust computer display settings to influence the impact that the computer has on the financial burden to the school. They will use mathematics to develop estimation strategies for calculating annual power consumption and cost savings when power management strategies are implemented. They will also use spreadsheet software to calculate and interpret data during the activity. (Contains 1 table, 2 photos and 17 figures.)
