Rooted in Math Educator Toolkit

Mathematics allows us to analyze current conditions within an environment, make predictions about future trends, and respond in ways that surpass what is possible through simple observation. When looked at in the context of the other STEM subjects (science, technology, and engineering), mathematics becomes a necessary tool in the practice of these fields, enabling the collection and comparison of scientific data that then informs the technology and engineering design of the future.

Rooted in Math

Concepts of math in and of themselves might seem far removed from the natural world, but when you take a closer look at the world, the way we study it, and the way we interact with it, you might be surprised to find out how much of what we know about the environment is rooted in math.

Citizen Science is Blooming

The scientific community needs help collecting data over lengthy time periods and wide geographic areas, and hundreds of thousands of helping hands from people with an interest in the environment make for light work. People of all ages, abilities, knowledge levels, and skillsets can participate in citizen science, gathering data to help scientists, emergency responders, community managers, and more to make discoveries and informed decision-making.
