The Nuffield Foundation provides this activity where students suggest types of function to model ozone hole data, before using a graphic calculator or spreadsheet to find at least two particular models. They then consider how well their functions model the data and what they predict for the future.
The slideshow includes web links for students to undertake research and gain further insight into the issues regarding the ozone layer. No answers or reflection questions are provided, enabling this activity to be used as an assignment for assessment.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
