This book provides many of the quantitative skills your students will need to make sense out of climate change. To think quantitatively about climate change, students must become fluent in working with Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales. Students also should understand the difference between watts, kilowatts and kilowatt hours; tons and gigatons; and BTUs and tons of carbon dioxide. All of these units appear in news stories about climate change and human impacts on the environment. The problems in this guide include basic mathematics, algebra, geometry and some trigonometric functions. The one-page assignments are accompanied by one-page answer keys.
