Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This resource includes an interactive map and graphs that show the share of primary energy from nuclear power for countries around the world from 1965.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The interactive provides three different ways for students to explore data (chart, map, table).
  • Students may choose to view data sets for various geographic locations and time periods.
  • Related research and data are linked.
  • The site explains how the data was collected.
Additional Prerequisites
  • Learners need to be familiar with the various sources of energy, and classifications.
  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.
Differentiation
  • There are other related interactive maps for other sources of energy.
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

Metrics used to measure and convert the different unit of energy from nuclear, fossil and other renewables are accurate and accepted. The resource presents relative share of energy from nuclear. Africa has a relative deviation and scores low. This resource is valid and recommended for teaching.

Standards
