The presence of contaminants from polluting industries is all too common in low-income areas today, and getting a handle on the situation can be quite challenging. We want to protect the health and welfare of our families, but understanding the complexities of risk, the technical terms and the math involved in environmental data reports is not always easy. Join us as we take a deep dive into the tools, lessons plans, and resources available to empower your adult learners with environmental literacy.
On Tuesday, July 29, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. EDT, LINCS will host Statistics for Action: Using Environmental Data for Meaningful Mathematics in Your Classroom. Join the LINCS Community team, Math and Numeracy group moderator Brooke Istas, and special guests Selene Gonzalez-Carrillo and Martha Merson as we discuss ways to use readily available environmental data in math and science lessons for adults at the pre-ASE and ASE levels.
Presenters will demonstrate how to give your students hands-on experience in interpreting graphs, comparing amounts, using ratios, and finding percent increases. Whether you’re a mathematics teacher, a science teacher, a proponent of data use, or are just interested in health literacy, this is sure to be an event you will not want to miss!
