Students compare risks, which they convert from different formats (typically fractions) into decimal then exponential numbers, and plot them on a logarithmic scale. Sample data are given for selected diseases and cancers; other commonly cited risks are also included. Students may collect information from various professional safety organizations. The experience incorporates cooperative learning, problem solving, and critical thinking.
