Student Instructions

For each assignment, you will use the M.U.S.E. link to complete the lab.

In this lab, you will see the impacts associated with coal-fire or nuclear power plants for electricity generation. This will help you write a scientific paper that focuses on energy sources.

Energy Sources

Everything people do in their daily lives involves the consumption of resources. One resource in particular is energy. Electricity is one of the most important energy resources consumed. Electricity is also one of the highest in demand. Traditionally, fossil fuels have dominated the U.S. energy mix. Examples of fossil fuels include:

  • Coal
  • Natural gas
  • Oil

However, it is well-known that fossil fuels emit carbon into the environment. This is harmful to the environment because fossil fuels are contributing to global warming. Fortunately, alternative energy sources are becoming more efficient and popular. Examples of alternative energy sources include:

  • Solar
  • Wind
  • Hydro
  • Geothermal

Analyze energy sources, to write a scientific paper that addresses:

  • The 2 primary sources of electricity generation are coal and nuclear power plants. Which of these sources is better for human sustainability?

Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and gather your data.

Assignment Specific Grading Criteria:

Unit 4 Individual Project Grading Criteria

Max Points

Table in Part 1 is filled out completely using simulated data from MUSE


Purpose describes the overall lab in 2-3 sentences


Introduction is a 1 paragraph about energy usages and the main factors on coal and nuclear energy resources. This may include common perceptions about these resources and environmental concerns. Introduction may also discuss human energy demands. This is not a summary of the actual lab.


Hypothesis is a one sentence prediction that relates directly to the data collected in Part 1.


Methods include a summary of using the simulation to collect data.


Results summarize in sentence form the data contained in Part 1. Table from Part 1 should either be included in this section or referred to.


Discussion is 1 paragraph that explicitly relates data (Table 1) to hypothesis, making connections between human energy usages, long-term sustainability, and the two energy resources compared in the lab.


Uses proper spelling, punctuation, and grammar to write clearly and effectively.
