Quantitative Environmental Learning Project
This web site provides resources to integrate math and environmental science using real environmental data. The site features many data sets which are ideally suited for use as a classroom exercise. The data sets are sorted by topics, such as ecology, energy, air pollution or water resources. The data is also sorted by type, such as linear scatterplot, histogram, or exponential. With each data set there is useful background information about the topic, the raw data, and a plot of the data. This provides all of the ingredients for an instructor to create a classroom exercise. The central goal of the Quantitative Environmental Learning Project is to integrate mathematics and environmental science. The data sets included here allow teachers to accomplish just that. Although the project was geared toward college level classes, the material could be adapted to younger audiences as well.
