CliMathNet newsletters

MCRN and CliMathNet have an organizational collaboration funded by the National Science Foundation under the Science Across Virtual Institutes (SAVI) program.

CliMathNet is a network, based in the United Kingdom, which aims to bring together Climate Scientists, Mathematicians and Statisticians to answer the key questions around climate modeling (in particular understanding and reducing uncertainties in observation and prediction).This is an area of science that ranges from numerical weather prediction to the science underpinning the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC).

Mathematics Freshman Seminar Course - A Climate of Uncertainty

This collection contains the teaching materials I used for designing the Freshman Science Seminar Mathematics 190 - A Climate of Uncertainty at UNC-Chapel Hill Fall 2013.   This collection is maintained as a reference for other instructors interested in teaching about climate change using open curriculum.  I made extensive use of the training modules provided by MetEd to utilize a "flipped classroom" approach.  Traditional lecturing was largely replaced by assigning the training modules in this collection for homework and having my students send me their quiz scores.  In class, I utilized a mix of "read and report" group presentations, discussions, roleplays, and modelling exercises on laptops.   I encourage others to build and improve on the ideas I had for this course, and to contact me  with questions related to the materials and course design.

Cheers!

Colin
