Lorson. Introduction to Mathematics for Environmental Science evolved from the author’s 30 years’ experience teaching mathematics to graduate and advanced undergraduate students in the environmental sciences.

Its basic purpose is to teach various types of mathematical structures and how they can be applied in a broad range of environmental science. Featuring actual case studies of teachers’ attempts to integrate their curriculum, their reasons for doing so, how they did it, and their reflections on the outcomes, this book encourages science educators to consider the purposes and potential outcomes of this approach and raises important questions about the place of science in the school.

The book looks at why it is important to think about thinking, introduces assessment early to help the teacher plan for assessment before teaching even begins, and sets up an environment that will support the construction of the big ideas that integrate math and science.

Abstract. Mathematics problems involving basic computations, percents, ratios, tables, circle charts and graphs are used to illustrate environmental issues such as population growth, wastefulness, resource scarcity, air and water pollution, and electrical energy demand.
