To prepare for this exercise, students read textbook chapter on temperature (Geosystems, Christoperson 2009) and they read about the differences between weather and climate. The classroom lecture includes definitions of daily mean temperature, monthly mean temperature, mean monthly temperature, range of temperatures, and climatological averages. The students need to read graphs and determine values from the graphs. Simple addition and division are used. The data set used is from the Southern Regional Climate Center and is accessed via the internet. I used the data set from current month (March 2010) and we discussed the past winter and whether or not it was colder than the climatology averages. This helps students understand the difference between weather from climate. The activity is part of an online activity in Moodle, a classroom management software program used at LSU.
