- DataStreme Atmosphere - American Meteorological Society
A major precollege teacher enhancement initiative of the American Meteorological Society (AMS). Its main goal is the training of K-12 Weather Education Resource Teachers who will promote the teaching of science, mathematics, and technology using weather as a vehicle. A 13-week course is offered twice a year to selected
participants. It focuses on the study of the atmospheric environment through the use of electronically transmitted weather data and learning materials combined with Study Guide readings and investigations.
- Meteorology: Does Weather Happen Randomly? - Richard Levine, Tefft Middle School, Streamwood, IL
Does weather happen randomly or are there patterns that can be recognized? If there are patterns, what are they and how can we use them? Scientific skills involved are: collecting, recording and analyzing data; thinking creatively and critically, and communicating results. Students use graphs and spreadsheets to do investigations on the relation between altitude and temperature, latitude and temperature, the direction weather moves, atmospheric readings, the relation between dewpoint temperature and actual air temperature as a storm approaches, and atmospheric readings as a line of storms approaches and departs a reporting station, predicting the weather.
