To begin with, we broke down our project into parts and each team member researched a
different topic. We had to do research on APS (Arizona Public Service), find out causes
of air pollution, what effects it could have, and different ways of reducing it. Then we put
it all together to see what we all had discovered.
Next we decided on a math model to help us to find out how far pollutants can
travel from the plant.
Distance = Time * Rate
We figured this could help us to see how pollutants build up. In doing this we saw that on
a very windy day, the pollutants can travel farther but it is thinned out. If you were to
calculate it on a not-so-windy day, the pollutants wouldn’t travel as far, but it would be
