February 22, 2017: "Understanding Weber's Industrial Location"

Description: Join us as we explore how Story Maps can be used to effectively teach Weber’s model of industrial location.  One example of a bulk-gaining product and one example of a bulk-reducing product will be used.  Share with, and listen to how others take abstract models and help students apply them to the real world.
