Dr. Janel Hanrahan recently presented at the 2015 Association of Teachers of Mathematics in New England (ATMNE) conference in Portland, Maine. Her session titled, “Using Mathematics to Understand the Science of Climate Change,” was well received by middle and high school mathematics teachers from around New England. The group was excited to learn how fundamental climate change concepts could be incorporated into their own classrooms. They used various online datasets and graphics to understand how carbon dioxide concentrations are changing, and to explore recent trends in temperature, atmospheric water vapor, and precipitation.
