ABSTRACT
The article discusses the study conducted by a group of students, predicting global warming using mathematical models. Using a PowerPoint presentation full of images of calving icebergs and seaside towns as a prompt, the pupils discussed what could make the sea level rise. They also identified the role of melting land-based ice in sea level rise and identified how high the local town was above the sea level.
