Find the article, "In the Thick of Air Pollution," not through the resource link in the lesson, but through an Internet search. Have high schoolers read it and perform calculations with the statistics provided. The objective is to consider if there is a relationship between particulate matter in the air and the occurrence of cardiovascular disease. This is an especially beneficial lesson for future public health officials, math practice, or environmental studies majors.
