This resource explains how to estimate the global consequence of a person's actions to quantify what it is to "think globally." To lend meaning to the result, it introduces "order-of-magnitude" thinking. Three examples, on the global impact of a short drive, a little water and an hour of light, are described. This resource is from PUMAS - Practical Uses of Math and Science - a collection of brief ... Full description.
