Description

Project EDDIE Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry & Exploration) is a community effort aimed at developing teaching resources and instructors that address quantitative reasoning and scientific concepts using open inquiry of publicly available data. Project EDDIE modules are designed with an A-B-C structure to make them flexible and adaptable to a range of student levels and course structures.

By the end of this module, students will be able to formulate questions about sustainability, navigate the Gapminder tool to find and incorporate multiple factors of quantitative data, read and interpret graphs, and report their findings, supported with quantitative data. Specifically, students will be able to:

  • identify data sources and units from the Gapminder online interactive data tool
  • read and interpret a bubble chart incorporating multiple factors of sustainability data
  • generate a time series bubble chart to track sustainability metrics over time
  • communicate their findings with the class and discuss the strengths and limitations of the IPAT framework
