Student Learning Objectives

As a result of this RWLO, the student will be able to:

  • Choose an appropriate model for data

  • Describe some of the factors that help to determine the goodness of fit of a model to data

  • Determine if the model fits with underlying theory of real-world phenomena


(NOTE: this RWLO is based on the Global Sun Temperature Project)
