Transformations in Matter and Energy Carbon TIME is an NSF-funded partnership led by Michigan State University
Human Energy Systems | Activity 6.1
Target Student Performance
Students use the Very, Very Simple Climate Model to make predictions about future atmospheric CO2 concentrations and global temperatures based on CO2 emissions scenarios.
- 6.1 Using Models to Predict Future Conditions Worksheet (1 per student)
- 6.1 Grading Using Models to Predict Future Conditions Worksheet
Prepare a computer with a projector to display the model at http://scied.ucar.edu/simple-climate-model
Use students’ responses to the questions on the worksheet to assess their understanding of the effect of CO2 emissions on atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures.
