Goal: Understand how to develop a sampling plan and interpretation strategy for which students understand the limitations.
Lesson 1: Limitations
Objective – Describe the limitations of air sampling due to variability, error, unknown association with mold growth, and difficulty in interpretation.
Lesson 2: Sampling Plan
Objective – Establish a sampling plan that answers the following critical questions:
Why am I sampling?
How many samples should I take?
Where should samples be collected?
Lesson 3: Interpretation
Objective – Apply simple interpretation strategies for laboratory results from spore trap and viable air samples.
