The two units of this module follow a similar structure (introduction, data exploration, data analysis, and synthesis) to facilitate student and teacher use. Many of the activities include fact-based queries but also include the construction of various graphs. The main summative activity is at the end of the second unit where the students must construct a testable hypothesis linking ecosystem function with energy and carbon fluxes.
