Abstract

This lesson plan aims to introduce students to the area of aerosols. It is commonly taught that pollution is a product of certain processes and reactions, but the makeup of the emissions is largely glazed over aside from carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and sulfur dioxide. Our aim is to dig a little deeper and expand upon what is commonly taught, so students have a better understanding of what is in the air. In addition, we want to convey how the particles in the air impact the mortality rate of humans.
