Explore changing ocean ecosystems with an interdisciplinary investigation. Learners conduct lab experiments to collect data on the atmosphere's interaction with carbon dioxide. They then analyze the data using statistical analysis such as t-tests.
- Use as an interdisciplinary lesson with science; have science classes collect the data and math classes analyze it
- Requires a specific set of materials and time for setting up lab investigations
- Expects a basic understanding of data analysis
- Provides all necessary handouts and answer keys
- Connects mathematics to real-world situations
