Student Learning Objectives
this RWLO, the student will be able to:
choosing a major city in the U.S.A., predict with some sort
of rationale in which month the temperature:
website to find the average daily maximum temperature for the last 12
months of any major city in the USA and construct a chart
containing this data.
graphing calculator to:
data into lists (columns).
regression function of the form T(x) = a*sin(bx + c) +d where T is the
temperature and x is the time in months.
regression function and its derivative function.
derivative of the regression function by applying basic differentiation
graph of the derivative to find the actual real months where the
temperature changes most rapidly or most slowly and state the mathematical
reasoning that supports these results.
predictions made in the beginning with the actual real results found
