Examine a histogram to help answer the driving question "Which data display is most useful for determining the risk of a tropical cyclone in a given area and preparing an effective emergency plan?"
List of all Atmosphere Mini Lessons
Students interpret a graph of surface temperatures taken from city districts.
Students solve math problems to compare the carbon dioxide generated by the airline industry, a large volcanic eruption, and burning oil.
Use the Data Literacy Map Cubes to familiarize yourself with and interpret the model.
This line graph shows how the surface temperature and air temperature values change over the course of 24 hours.
Learners will analyze and interpret a box plot and evaluate the spread of the data. Learners will compare it with a different visualization of the data to see how the two compare, discuss the limitations of the two types of data displays and formulate questions.
Create a flipbook which will track aerosols and sulfur dioxide from the eruption of the Calbuco volcano in 2015. This activity was published in the Sky High: Keeping Track of Volcano Plumes issue of eoKids.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create, a box plot and evaluate the spread of the data.
Students observe the surface temperatures of a variety of surface types found in a suburban environment.
