Title: Hurricanes: A Curriculum Module and Theme
Url: http://www.ncsec.org/cadre2/team19_2/index.htm
Publisher: National Computational Science Education Consortium
Description: This module focuses on hurricane history, development, and paths. The hurricane theme is embedded in computational science activities that use math and statistical analysis. Students work in small groups and as individuals to gather data, select and use appropriate statistical methods to analyze it, then organize, analyze and model using computational tools. They will be able to analyze the structure and properties of the atmosphere, analyze weather systems and their life cycles, and evaluate meteorological observations, analysis, and prediction, worldwide observing systems, and meteorological data depiction. Through written and oral reports, poster projects, and PowerPoint presentations, students present their results as culminating activities.
