US and China CO2 Emisisons

In this activity, students are provided with CO2 emissions, population, and per capita emissions data for the US and China from 1980 to 2014. This dataset and associated exercise can be used to teach introductory calculus and topics in integration such as Reimann Sums and area under curves to calculate total emissions and per capita emissions and their average rate of change for each country.
