They will examine the carbon footprint of average Australians in comparison to the world average and to countries such as Bangladesh, as featured in a clip from 2040. Students will then engage in some mathematical problem solving by seeking to maximise their ‘household’ carbon savings given a set of constraints. This lesson can be used by students to extend on learning covered in 2040 – The Maths of Carbon – 5 & 6.

Energy And Liveability – Geography – Years 7&8

1hrs

Energy and liveability (US)

In this lesson, students will be immersed in, and connect with, the documentary film 2040, focusing on the topics of energy and liveability. Students will explore their understanding of liveability, thinking about how energy and our environment relate to liveability. They will work collaboratively to conduct research into the impacts of fossil fuels on our environment, explore a sustainable energy case study, and then work in groups to compare electricity produced from coal and solar.

Sustainable transport and scatterplotts_year 11_option 1

2hrs 57mins

Sustainable transport and scatterplots (US)

In this lesson, students will view excerpts from 2040 then access and evaluate statistical reports in the media and other places about sustainable transportation of the future, and they will use the data to construct scatter plots, make comparisons and draw conclusions.

Girls for the planet_maths_year 10

2hrs 19mins

Girls for the planet (US)

Floating Seaweed

2hrs 30mins

The seaweed solution (US)

In this lesson, students will access information about seaweed farming and greenhouse gas emissions and use percentages, ratios, and fractions to solve problems. Students will also investigate the relationship between seaweed farming, the health benefits of eating seaweed and climate change. They will use this information to develop an infographic that uses numbers to convince their peers to eat more seaweed.
