This 6 weeks, students will be studying probability and statistics. How fortunate, then, that we can use the crazy weather of north Texas as the backdrop for this project.
Students will collect data in the form of forecasts each day for 14 consecutive days. They will then verify the actual conditions of the days they found forecasts for. As students learn how to analyze data, they will devise a method to score the forecast they chose.
The intro document for this project (with updated schedule of due dates thanks to snow days and a mis-printed calendar) is below.
