Earthquakes and Plate Tectonics Student Directions and Additional Materials Students use real-time global earthquake data from the Internet to explore the relationship between earthquakes and plate tectonics. Mercedes McKay, Instructional Technology Specialist,, Stevens Institute of Technology
Polynomial Functions and Mathematical Modeling Student Directions and Additional Materials Using the Global Sun Temperature Telecollaborative database, students learn how quadratic equations and other high-order polynomials can be used to model non-linear relationships (e.g. temperature vs. latitude). Mercedes McKay, Instructional Technology Specialist, Stevens Institute of Technology
The Impact of Topography & Weather on Landslide Development Student Directions and Additional Materials Students use real-time and archived data in GIS format from the Internet to examine the relationships that weather and topography have on landslide development.
