SCIE1001 Many Planets One Earth

Subjects:
Science
Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
3.0

How exceptional are the conditions that allow life to develop and diversify on Earth? No other planet in our solar system has developed along the same geologic and biologic path as Earth. Life as we know it is a direct result of specific conditions that appear thus far to be unique to our planet. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and data analysis, examine the unique characteristics that make our planet habitable and learn about the critical systems that help to regulate Earth’s climate.

SCIE1005 Demographic Dynamics

Subjects:
Science
Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
3.0

Humans have both affected and been affected by the Earth system, and as the human population continues to grow, human society will have to confront the impact this growth has on the environment. Human appropriation of natural resources—land, water, fish, minerals, and fossil fuels—has profoundly altered the natural environment. Which factors influence human population growth trends most strongly, and how does population growth impact the environment? In complex modern societies, the most critical environmental health challenge facing the human population is defining a balance between the social and economic benefits that materials and technologies provide on one hand and risks to the health of the population on the other hand. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and data analysis, you will examine how science can provide solutions to some of these environmental challenges, allowing human societies and natural ecosystems to coexist.

SCIE1011 Human Impacts on Environmental Systems

Subjects:
Science
Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
3.0

As our world population continues to grow, human impacts on the Earth’s environmental systems will continue to affect the health and stability of our ecosystem. How can we protect our water resources and the Earth’s biodiversity while also meeting our energy challenges? Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and data analysis, learners will examine how water resource issues and the decline in biodiversity affect life on Earth. Learners will also investigate how we can provide the energy we need while maintaining an ecological balance.

SCIE1015 Earth's Changing Climate

Subjects:
Science
Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
3.0

Many forms of atmospheric pollution affect human health and the environment, both locally and globally. Earth's climate is a sensitive system, which is also greatly impacted by this atmospheric pollution. Today, human activities are altering the climate system by increasing concentrations of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which raises global temperatures. Solutions to these problems do exist and are critical to the health of our planet. Through Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and data analysis, learners will examine the critical connection between our Earth’s atmosphere and its climate.

SCIE572 The Habitable Planet: A Systems Approach to Environmental Science—A Special Collection from Annenberg Learner

Subjects:
Science
Grades:
9th-12th
Hours:
45.0

This course helps to provide a background for understanding and discussing the natural functioning of the different Earth systems: geophysical systems, the atmosphere, the oceans, and natural ecosystems. Examine the unique characteristics that make our planet habitable and investigate the effects of human actions on different natural systems: land use, air and water pollution, biodiversity decline, and the extraction of resources. What can be predicted, given current trends, if humans act in concert to mitigate their impact on the planetary system? Use inquiry-based learning techniques to determine which multimedia resources—Annenberg Learner videos, interactive labs, and more—will best engage your students and hone their skills as scientific thinkers.
