This Starting Point module discusses teaching with mathematical and statistical models in entry-level geoscience courses. Mathematical models of systems grow out of equations that determine how a system changes from one state to the next and/or how one variable depends on the value or state of other variables. Statistical Models include issues such as statistical characterization of numerical data, ... Full description.

The Fog Chamber exercise is an Exploratorium Science Snack demonstration. The activity shows students how clouds and fog are created with a very simple physical model using a 1 gallon jar, latex glove, a little water, and matches. The exercise teaches students how to make a simple cloud that in order to form requires water vapor, a cooling mechanism, and condensation nuclei. This site provides information ... Full description.
