Answers to Warm Up Aug 26th, 2013
  • 1. What do you think environmental systems is about? Environmental Systems explores the nature of science and the natural world. Students examine environmental issues and learn to make informed decisions using scientific problem solving. Specific topics include ecological interactions, matter and energy flow in ecosystems, biodiversity, characteristics and growth of populations, evolution, succession, biogeochemical cycles, soil and land resources, agriculture, waste management, and characteristics of terrestrial biomes. UT@Austin K-12 Ed
  • 2. What would you like to learn in environmental systems? Answers will vary
  • 3. Look at the objects around the room. Where do all the resources come from for these objects? Try to name as many as you can think of. Gypsum for wall board, plastic from petroleum, iron, nickle and zinc for the various metal objects, pressed particle board from wood, calcium carbonate, copper and silicon in electronic equipment.

  • Name at least 3 things that can be recycled.
    • Cardboard, paper, aluminum, plastic, magazines, paper board, batteries, glass bottles, giving anything to goodwill
  • What is composting?
    • Composting is nature's process of recycling decomposed organic materials into a rich soil known as compost. Anything that was once living will decompose. Basically, backyard composting is an acceleration of the same process nature uses. By composting your organic waste you are returning nutrients back into the soil in order for the cycle of life to continue. Finished compost looks like soil–dark brown, crumbly and smells like a forest floor.

  • How is electricity made?
    • A generator manufactures electricity. In a generator, something causes the shaft and armature to spin. An electric current is generated.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20Vb6hlLQSg

  • What is global climate change?
    • The Earth is getting warmer because people are adding heat-trapping gases to the atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. These gases are called greenhouse gases. Warmer temperatures are causing other changes around the world, such as melting glaciers and stronger storms.

Warm up

  • What is an adaptation? An adaptation is a characteristic that an organism has developed to survive in a particular climate.
  • Name three adaptations for organisms that live in the desert. Organisms that live in the desert must have adaptations to limited water: animals have large appendages to dissipate heat, the ability to burrow or sleep during the hottest time of the day, the adaptation of being nocturnal, plants have thick skins to retain water, and spiny thorns to prevent other organisms from eating them for their water storage.
  • Name three adaptations for organisms that live in a polar region. Organisms that live in polar regions may change color depending on the time of year, may hibernate during the coldest time of the year, may have an extra layer of fat to contain body heat, plants many have waxy-coated leaved to prevent moisture loss, they may keep their leaves to save energy, and they are pyramid shaped to lose the heavy snow that builds on their branches.

What is primary succession? What is the example he gives? Primary succession is when a disturbance removes everything down to bare rock. A volcanic eruption.

What do we need to get soil? We have to have erosion (wind and rain) to create soil from rock.

Why does life come back slower with primary succession? Because very few organisms can live without soil.

How do organisms get to new islands? Wind, water, carried by birds.

What is secondary succession? Secondary succession when there is a disturbance, but the soil remains. What is the example he gives? A forest fire.

What are pioneer species? Species that come into an area after a disturbance. What are the two examples he gives? Lupine and Lodgepole pines.

  • What is radioactive decay? Radioactive decay, also known as nuclear decay or radioactivity, is the process by which a nucleus of an unstable atom loses energy by emitting particles of ionizing radiation. A material that spontaneously emits this kind of radiation—which includes the emission of energetic alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays—is considered radioactive.
  • Why do large elements need more neutrons than smaller elements? Because protons are positively charged and are repelled by each other. Without many more neutrons, the nucleus would fall apart.
  • What is alpha, beta and gamma decay? Alpha loses two protons and two neutrons, beta loses an electron(positron or electron) and gamma emits high frequency energy.

directions for our water regulations and acts activity
Directions for our Water Regulations and Acts Activity
  • There are 6 Water Regulations and Acts:
    • Water Resources Planning Act (1965)
    • Water Resources Development Act (1986)
    • Safe Drinking Water Act (1974)
    • Clean Water Act (1972)
    • Doctrine of Riparian Rights
    • Principle of Prior Appropriation

You will be given a card that represents one of these regulations. The card will give you the definition of another regulation and you have to find the student with the card that has the appropriate act or right. Then the two of you will come up with a way to present it to the class-either a skit, rap, letter, song, poem, brochure, public service announcement, mock protest or some other creative way to present the material.

  • Please write the following definitions in your journals:
    • Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is a colorless corrosive gas that harms plants and animals. So2 my change to sulfur trioxide (SO3) when it enters the atmosphere. SO3 reacts with water vapor to form sulfuric acid (H2SO4) which is the main component of acid rain. Two-thirds of the sulfur in the atmosphere is due to human activities: the burning of coal and oil.
    • Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless and odorless gas that is highly toxic and is formed by the incomplete combustion of fuel such as coal, oil, natural gas, or charcoal. Nearly all of the CO in the atmosphere eventually leads to the production of ozone. Ozone in the lower atmosphere is a major component in photochemical smog.

Oct 18th, 2nd and 6th Warm Up
  • Photochemical Oxidants in the atmosphere are products of a secondary reaction or of a reaction caused by the Sun. The creation of ozone is the most significant photochemical reaction, the reaction takes place when an atmospheric reaction splits a molecule of nitrogen dioxide, forming a single atom of oxygen. This single atom can then react with a molecule of O2 to form O3 or ozone. Ozone in the stratosphere protects the planet from the Sun’s harmful radiation. Ozone that is formed close to the ground, however, can damage plants, eyes and lungs, and building materials. Ozone gives photochemical smog its distinctive color (reddish-brown).

  • Particulate matter: dust, ash, soot, lint, smoke, pollen, and spores are all considered particulate matter. That is solid or liquid particles suspended in a gas. Often the most obvious form of pollution which reduces visibility and leaves cars and windows dirty. Particles that are less than 2.5mm in size are the most dangerous because they directly enter lungs damaging lung tissue and increasing risks of cancer.
  • Nitrogen oxides: highly reactive gases that are formed when nitrogen is heated to about 650 degrees Celsius. This happens during the burning of fossil fuels or other combustion processes. NO is formed when these processes take place. They further oxidize into NO2 which is responsible for giving photochemical smog its distinctive reddish brown color. NOx mix with water vapor forming Nitric Acid which is a major component of acid rain.

  • According to the US Bureau of Transit Statistics for 2006 there are 250,844,644 registered passenger vehicles in the US. These vehicles spew hundreds of millions of tons of exhaust into the atmosphere.  Much of this exhaust is invisible water vapor, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrous oxides.  Carbon dioxide is the main greenhouse gas contributing to global warming today.  Carbon monoxide and nitrous oxides are dangerous to human health.  Nitrous oxides also harm the environment.   Particulates, tiny particles created when fuel is incompletely burned, are yet another major component of exhaust.
