TAAMSS IV model lesson: A civil action

A Civil Action In designing a model lesson to present at the

fourth “show and tell” academy, the team from

North Carolina chose to focus on the topic of

groundwater pollution. They built their lesson

around a classic demonstration, the Plume

Experiment, and adapted the lesson from several

activities that can be found on the Web. This

lesson was further enhanced with a mathematical

modeling exercise that mapped the “evidence”

gathered in the investigation. (See: A Grave
