Hello everyone. My name is Natasha Loochaz, and I will be giving my MAT480 presentation on Wednesday, March 31. For my presentation, I will be talking about one of the biggest threats that humanity is currently facing, global warming. It is no secret that the world is continuously get- ting warmer, and it is us, humans, that are to be blamed for this disaster. The greenhouse gases that are being emitted into the atmosphere due to human activity is the primary cause of global warming. In the presence of this danger, mathematicians play a big role by using mathematical equations to create climate models that will help scientists predict the course of global warming and climate change. For my presentation, I will be focusing on an equation that is used to calculate the amount of carbon dioxide that is present in the atmosphere. The equation is made up of several components, and I will be breaking it down, and discussing each component separately. It would be beneficial to have taken a course in differential equations prior to this presentation, however it is not necessary. Overall, my presentation tends to focus more on the science side of things rather than the math side. I hope to see you all there on Wednesday. Thank you.
Hi Natasha! This was a really great presentation, and I thought the information was carried across very well. I don’t have a background in science at all, but the way the important information was presented made it easy to follow along, and learn something new. I especially appreciated the images that you used, as they did help to demonstrate your main points. I’d definitely be interested in reading your thesis!
Hey Natasha! The presentation was really great. It was so informative and thank you for sharing your ideas with us about Calculating Carbon Dioxide Levels in the Atmosphere. Although I am not good at Science fields, it was worth it and when thinking about we have lots of people doing research on Global warming, I am happy that people are doing their best to help to preserve the environment and well being of human health. Looking forward to your research and success in the near future.
Hi Natasha! You did a great job on this presentation! It was very clear how knowledgeable you are about global warming. Some of the statistics you shared with us were pretty scary! For example, I didn’t realize that some of the other greenhouse gases were so much more potent to global warming than carbon dioxide. Even though some of these other greenhouse gases make up a smaller portion of the atmosphere in comparison to carbon dioxide, they are very dangerous. Also, I never realized how much wildfires contribute to global warming. That’s particularly scary considering our country had so many absolutely devastating wildfires within the past year or so. I had to write a paper on global warming for a class my senior year of high school, yet almost everything you discussed was new to me. You were able to cover so much material in the time allotted for your presentation. Also, you not only covered a lot of information, but everything was explained extremely well. Amazing job!
This was very, very, very well done. I really don’t have much else to say. Perfect presentation. You seem like you really know what you’re talking about, which I find to be pretty rare when it comes to environmental sciences (not that I know anything). There are so many variables at play here and each tiny step we take in understanding our planet will help. Seriously, excellent, excellent job!
This presentation was done very very well. You seemed very knowledgeable on everything that you were talking about and didn’t seem to skip a beat. You definitely taught me, and I’m assuming others something new and opened our eyes a lot more about global warming. Fantastic job!!
