Tina Ku Sleeper's insight:

Math is an essential skill to solving many of the world's most troubling issues, including continual access to clean water. If students learn math while using it to solve real problems in their communities, such as improving water use efficiency at their home or school, then making the effort to learn math will have more purpose and worth.

Good article Tina, I missed this one. Must agree with all that is stated. I've been researching chlorine and chloramines for a bit and it seems that no-one really is looking at the problems that are arising due to health problems. I found an interesting You Tube video 1:34 regarding chlorine absorption in the body. Ill send it later today.
