Graphing Sunspot Cycles Graphing Sunspot Cycles Presentation Transcript

  • Graphing Sunspot Cycles
    • The data represent the number of sunspots per year from 1700—2008
    • For example, the year 1965 had 15.1 sunspots
    • Use the data to prepare a graph of sunspot numbers from 1965—2008
    • Questions :
      • What is the average length between high points in the cycles you graphed?
      • Based upon your graph, was 2006 a maximum or minimum year? What will 2015 likely be?
      • Was your birth year closer to a maximum or a minimum?
