Polynomial Functions and Mathematical Modeling

Project Overview

Using data collected from the Global Sun - Temperature Telecollaborative project, students will learn how linear functions, quadratic functions and other high-order polynomials can be used to model relationships.

Students will examine and evaluate a number of models created using archived data collected in this project. They will decide which model best fits the data based on a variety of criteria.
