Modeling CO2 Levels - Linear Modeling

In this activity students will explore levels of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere over time. There is concern that levels of CO2 are rising; and finding a good mathematical model for CO2 levels is an important part of determining if this is attributable to human technology. Students draw a scatter plot, choose two points to create a linear model for the data, then use the model to make predictions.
