EVR 1001 FIU Introduction to Environmental Science Review Papers

Assignment 1

This assignment is related to the Chapter 1 material. Please complete the ecological footprint exercise , at the following website: http://www.footprintnetwork.org (please do all the “add details to improve accuracy” options…this will make sense once you enter the website). If it doesn’t open up directly here, cut and paste the URL in a new browser window. Please note you will need to use your email address to access the online game.

Once you have completed the online exercise/game, I need you to: 1) submit to me the total number of planets it takes to support a world population of people like you, who make your lifestyle choices (one complete sentence), 2) share with me one point from the website that surprised you or that made you want to change your behavior/choice in life (one-two sentences), and 3) Based on the World Population video within the Chapter 1 () folder, include a paragraph here summarizing the video and providing your thoughts/opinion of the video (paragraph must be 5 or more sentences long). All of this is due to me as a Word attachment by the due date posted on the syllabus. Simply click on this link in the folder (the title) and a window will open up where you can submit your work. Remember to spell check and grammar check, as you will loose points if the work has errors, and make sure to address all three components above for full credit. Don’t miss the deadline; no late work is accepted (no excuses).
