The student(s) will investigate the weather over the course of a month. The student(s) will write down the temperature (outside their classroom) at the same time everyday. They will use this information to find the mean and median temperatures over the month.
You will start by finding the definitions for a median and a mean. From there, you will discuss how the weather has been outside. You make take note of the differences in temperature between a rainy day and a sunny day.
You will draw a chart or graph to help you display the following information: Date, the number of days you will collect data, temperature, time the temperature was taken, and the type of weather outside.
After each week, you need to write down your thoughts in your journal. You may want to include what you think will happen next week and/or why the temperature has or hasn’t been changing. In your journal entry, you must include the median and mean of that week’s weather.
You will present your chart/graph to the class. You will also explain to them why you think your data showed these numbers. Talk about the weather that you had this month and what could have caused your numbers to vary.
