​Fuel Efficiency


Car Economics Activity. Cool School Challenge. Grades 7-12. http://www.coolschoolchallenge.org/Downloads/Activities/CarEconomicsActivity.pdf. By simulating the process of purchasing a vehicle, students will learn how to compare and contrast variables, such as car prices, fuel economy, gas prices, and CO2 emissions. Students will see how different vehicles affect the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. Assuming, for this exercise, that a car lasts ten years, students will calculate the long-term costs and efficiency of their vehicle choice.
