Description: 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.
