Students interpret a graph of surface temperatures taken from city districts.
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.
Review this animation showing monthly average wind speed at 10 meters above the ocean surface for our global ocean (meters per second) in 2017-2018. This animation was created using the My NASA Data Earth System Data Explorer. For more information about how to create your own animation, see links at the bottom of this page.
Students observe the surface temperatures of a variety of surface types found in a suburban environment.
Use the Data Literacy Map Cubes to familiarize yourself with and interpret the model.
The purpose of this lesson is for students to create, analyze and compare histograms, box plots and scatter plots and evaluate the spread of the data. You can choose which types of graphs you want your students to complete.
These six graphs show Ocean Chlorophyll Concentrations from 1998 - 2018 in a variety of locations: East Bering Sea, Gulf of Alaska, California Coast, Southeastern US/Gulf of Mexico, Northeastern US and the Scotian Shelf, and the Hawaiian Islands. Consider using the Graph Cube to help students with deeper-dives into data analysis. Credit: NASA, NOAA
Review this mapped plot of the historic Ocean Chlorophyll Concentrations of key locations around the world for the period of 1998-2018. Also, consider using the Map Cube to help students with deeper dives into data analysis. Credit: NASA, NOAA
