 Description: Using this Real World Learning Object, students will use data collected from the Global Sun – Temperature Telecollaborative project to learn how “linear functions, quadratic functions and other high-order polynomials can be used to model relationships.” Over the course of the exercises included in the present learning object, “students will examine and evaluate a number of models created using archived data collected in this project and [t]hey will decide which model best fits the data based on a variety of criteria.” This is a useful resource for math and science teachers attempting to teach introductory mathematical modeling techniques.
