Description

On this page from PBS Teacher Source's Mathline, students are given some basic statistics about waste and then asked to solve math word problems using those statistics. The answers to the word problems help students to see that even small changes in their actions can have a big impact on the environment. This Web page is referenced in the Science NetLinks lesson, "Engineering Solutions."
