Below are teaching modules that I
developed in conjunction with a National Science Foundation Early CAREER
grant and the UCSD California
State Summer School in Mathematics and Science (COSMOS)
Program course "Earthquakes in Action". These modules were designed
for grades 9-12, however many of these exercises can be applied to
classrooms of grades 6 and up. Each module will require ~2-3 hours
to complete. Please note that the documents posted below are draft
versions and currently under construction. Links to animations will
be posted soon. Please email me if you would like a copy of a short
PowerPoint lecture (~15 min.) that corresponds to each module.
Special acknowledgements go out to Kristin Lawrence and Allison Jacobs for
their help with designing and implementing these exercises.
