Oil Spill Tragedy


As of May 28th, 2010  it is believed that the early estimate of 210,000 gallons of oil (around 5000 barrels) per day of oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico was much too low. The flow rate was revised on May 27th to be between 12,000 and 19,000 barrels per day (around 500,000 gallons) of oil.

With this updated sheet, students work with rates, percentages, proportions and averages to further understand the magnitude of this event.
