Toolkit: Teaching Confidence Interval, Student’s t-distribution, Uncertainty, and Trends by using Hurricane Intensity Data

As a teacher of undergraduate Statistics you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching topics such as confidence interval, student’s t-distribution, and uncertainty by using a given data-set for hurricane records.  For a teacher of undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences, this activity will help students develop a better understanding of disasters, the possible impact of climate change on hurricanes, and calculating trends and understanding uncertainty.

Toolkit: Teaching pH Scale and Acidification through Climate-related Examples

As a teacher of high school or undergraduate Chemistry, you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching the pH scale, acids and bases, acidification, and environmental chemistry.

Your current lesson plan can be augmented with this additional classroom/laboratory activity that allows students to understand the pH scale and acidification by analyzing the effect of atmospheric carbon dioxide on ocean chemistry. The activity will also explore the potential effects of climate change on ocean acidification, and the possible impacts of ocean acidification on marine organisms.

Toolkit: Teaching Glaciers and Cryosphere through Climate-related Examples

As a high school or undergraduate Earth Science or Geography teacher, you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching glaciers, cryosphere, and related topics such as impact of temperature and precipitation on glacial mass, equilibrium line, accumulation, ablation, glacial budget, glacier length, glacial advance, and glacial retreat. The activity will also enable students to understand the possible impacts of climate change on glaciers.

Toolkit: Teaching Hazards and Disasters through Climate-related Examples (Sea Level Rise and Flooding due to Melting of Polar Ice)

Introduction to Toolkit

As a teacher of high school or undergraduate Geography or Earth Sciences you can use this set of computer-based tools when teaching topics such as Hazards and Disasters: Natural and Man-made. This toolkit focuses on sea level rise and associated flooding due to the melting of polar ice caused by climate change.
