ab: From the text: Websites such as weather.com usually don’t give the actual
current temperature at your location ‒ it’s an educated estimate!
This modeling activity begins with students exploring the distribution
of temperatures across a “map" and ends with the students using
mathematical models to estimate the temperature at any given point on
that map.
