A Simple Model for Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide

In this atmospheric carbon dioxide worksheet, students use two diagrams to solve 6 problems about atmospheric carbon dioxide. One diagram shows the Keeling Curve and the other shows sources of carbon and the natural and anthropogenic flux. Students find sources and sinks of carbon dioxide, they write a differential equation describing the change in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and they use the Keeling Curve to compare it to their equation for the rate of change.

Lesson Planet is a great place to go for finding "ready to use" plans but also a place to gain ideas to springboard off of to create plans that meet specific class requirements.
