Algebra Application: Why Are Wildfires So Dangerous? 
In this Algebra Application, students learn about wildfires and the measurement of air quality. The math topics covered include:
The specific focus of this investigation is the health hazards from wildfire smoke. This includes a discussion of air density, measurement in microns, and measurement of air quality. Links to various web sites, including the EPA's site, provide relevant background information and data. The culminating activity is a case study of the wildfires in the Lake Tahoe area. Students analyze historical data and make a recommendation on the air quality. This is a great backtoschool activity for middle school or high school students. A relevant realworld application allows them to review math concepts. Note: The download is a PDF file that includes the link to the GoogleDoc version.
