Title: Rate of Change in Temperature
Url: http://www.ciese.org/pathways/rwlo/rwlos/2509/Changes%20in%20Temperat...
Creator: Huttner, Louise
Publisher: Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education
Description: Louise Huttner of Burlington County College designed this activity to help students learn and practice their calculus skills. Students will collect data on the monthly temperature of a city. They will then graph and analyze that data using their knowledge of differentiation of trigonometric functions and critical thinking skills. The procedure for this activity is clearly outlined. Detailed directions for students are located in the “Content Materials” section. A short list of weather websites that provide temperature information is included in the “Supplementary Resources” section. This activity is a great opportunity to incorporate real data and concrete examples into math education.
