http://www.earth.uni.edu/EECP/mid/mod5_ma.html
Students are introduced to the different heat-trapping abilities of the major greenhouse gases. The students are challenged to build three-dimensional models illustrating this differing heat-trapping ability. In Activity 2, students keep an Energy Diary which includes a record of all the activities they engaged in, over a one-day period, requiring the use of electricity. They are then able to analyze this data to determine their total contribution to the CO2 in Earth's atmosphere as a result of their use of electricity for that day. In the final activity, students discover the CO2-absorbing ability of trees. Mathematics is used as a tool to help the students convince others to go out and plant a tree.
