- Complete handout 121.
Today we collected our final day of weather data, took an in-class reflection on the wind map, and started to analyze our weather data. Here's what you need to do:
- Schedule a time with me to take the in-class reflection. It's 5 questions about identifying low and high pressures on the wind map.
- Get the daily weather data for day 25 from a classmate from your period.
- Follow the instructions for handout 121. Before you do, a few things you need to take care of on your daily weather data spreadsheet:
a. Delete any units on your temperature, humidity, and pressure data. For example, if your data says 17 °C, you need to remove the °C from the number. Google won't know what to do with that.
b. Organize your data so temperature, humidity, and pressure are next to each other on the spreadsheet. You can do this easily by clicking on a column and dragging it to the end of the data. For example, if you need to move wind speed, click and hold on the column for wind speed and drag it out of the way.
- Answer questions 1-3 on page 2 of handout 121 by using your graphs. You can also use the graphs on Weather Underground. You will find the graph under the 10-day forecast. Although it is predicted data, it still shows the patterns we are attempting to discover. Customize the graph to show temperature, humidity, and pressure.
