Investigating Evidence for Climate Chanage

Melissa Hage
This multi-part activity allows students to discover the relationships between CO2 and temperature and how these variables have changed over time using real-world data.

Water Quality Investigation

Melissa Hage
This multi-part module aims to help you learn about water quality implications by understanding the variability of concentrations of nitrate in stream water through the evaluation of real-time data and identifying the reasons for this variability.
