Stuck in Traffic

  • Stuck in Traffic

    Why are we stuck in so much traffic? Can't we just build more roads? Data collected by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute shows driving time in urban areas appears to be increasing each year. In this activity, we will graph and analyze traffic data and learn about transportation issues in many of our metropolitan areas. How does your region compare to others? What options are available to ease traffic congestion in our urban areas?

    Note: With this issue we introduce the fully customizable Student Edition. As always, the Teacher Edition develops the exploration across grades 5-10. Now teachers can add or delete questions to tailor the exploration to student needs.
