Environmental Indicators
Environment Canada has developed a set of environmental indicators that are easily measurable and provide useful clues on the state of the environment. This Web site provides a listing of those indicators that Environment Canada monitors. For each indicator, there is a detailed description of the environmental indicator, how it relates to larger environmental problems, and what is being done to reduce the threat. A number of Web links are provided for further information on each indicator.

Three squares : when do two squares make a new square?
This activity opens with a diagram of two unequal squares and challenges students to find a way to construct a third square from them. It is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world. The activity introduces the Pythagorean theorem and explains its importance in construction and engineering professions. Students are encouraged to model the problem using squares of paper. Related questions introduce Pythagorean triples, and the Did You Know page

Drip drops : how much water do you waste?
In this activity, students are given a situation in which a leaky faucet is dripping at the rate of one drop every two seconds. They are asked to decide if the water lost in one week would fill a drinking glass, a sink, or a bathtub. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 challenges, notes that mathematics is crucial for environmental and government agencies that must interpret data and report their findings to the public. The Hint states that a teaspoon holds about 20 drops. Th

Smiles : which is worth more, a smile or a frown?
This activity offers a logic problem in which students are shown an array of smiling, frowning, and neutral faces. Each row and column adds up to a different dollar amount, and students are challenged to determine how much a smile is worth. The activity, from the Figure This! collection of 80 online challenges, notes that working with equations is an important skill in such careers as nursing, chemistry, and engineering. Students are encouraged to begin this challenge by finding rows or columns

In this activity, students explore the nature and impact of friction. Students will observe, predict and record an object's motion over smooth, slippery and rough surfaces. These tasks will include an introduction to basic statics and dynamics in engineering through a discussion of forces and friction and a hands-on activity. Learners conduct 2 demonstrations using marbles and coins to learn about friction. Forces, simple vectors and free body diagrams which depict the forces can be discussed wi

Introduction to Tourism
This course covers topics which include defining what tourism is and the tourism system. It then reviews the development of tourism and tourist destinations before embarking on examining the tourist product and tourist industry. Where would tourism be without marketing? The course then explores market segmentation and then discusses the economic, socio-cultural and environmental impacts which must be considered when planning for tourism and the future of tourism.

Environmental Catalyst Module
In the Environmental Catalysis Module, a joint project with the Institute for Environmental Catalysis at Northwestern University, students learn what a catalyst is and become aware of the use of catalysis to promote environmental protection. Besides introducing the concept of catalysis, the module also focuses other issues such as catalytic selectivity, specificity, poisoning, condition optimization, and waste minimization. The first activity of the module introduces the concept of catalysis in

Asleep at the Switch: Local Public Health and Chronic Disease
Local health departments generally do a good job of monitoring and controlling conditions that killed people in the United States 100 years ago. Yet noncommunicable diseases, which accounted for less than 20% of US deaths in 1900,1 now account for about 80% of deaths.2 Our local public health infrastructure has not kept pace with this transition. Health departments must continue to handle traditional public health priorities as well as emerging infectious diseases. They must also increasingly ad

All about life
A primary curriculum based around life and environmental science draws on children's natural curiosity to teach reading, math, and more. For students to be successful in the science curriculum, they must study science through "hands-on" experiences. I use their past experiences as well as present experiences that I help to create to teach the curriculum. Many children today have never climbed a tree, walked in the woods, or waded in a stream, and I think that is sad. When they have the opportun
