Recommendations for Integration:
- This RWLO can be used
either in a Mathematics or Science course. It can serve as an
introduction to curve-fitting with a follow-up activity for
students to use data analysis software to construct their own
models for other sets of data. It can also be used in an Earth
Science course as a means for students to learn about the
relationships between latitude and daylight and temperature.
Students can make predictions based on their models and confirm
their predictions at different times of the year.
- Print-out all of the materials referenced
in the Content Material section of this web site and provide
sufficient copies to your students.
(NOTE: this RWLO is
based on the
Sun Temperature Project)
