We've all seen pictures of the Earth and its atmosphere as a series of concentric circles, showing the troposphere, stratosphere, ionosphere, etc., often looking like a bullseye target with the solid Earth in the middle. But if we were to draw that picture to scale, what would it really look like? Students create a scale drawing of the atmosphere, to see how thin the layer we breathe really is. This resource is from PUMAS - Practical Uses of Math and Science - a collection of brief examples created by scientists and engineers showing how math and science topics taught in K-12 classes have real world applications.
