A classroom/laboratory activity to analyze CO2 emissions data by using Riemann sums for the calculation of area under the curve.
Students will use calculate and compare CO2 emissions for the U.S. and China, based on emission and population data for the period 1980-2015. They will use Riemann sums to calculate the area under the curve. They will also create a proposal for emission reduction by considering past and current CO2 emissions for the two countries.
