Meteorology: describing and predicting the weather ‒ an activity in mathematical modeling. (English)

J. Math. Educ. Teach. Coll. 2, No. 1, 66-67 (2011).

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.
