Description:

This activity asks students to decide if a tourist visiting Rome should wear a jacket if the temperature is 35 degrees Celsius. The activity is part of the FigureThis! collection of challenges that emphasize math in the real world. Students are encouraged to approach the problem by drawing a thermometer and labeling it with the freezing and boiling points of water in both the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. The solution presents a diagram and the formula for converting Celsius to Fahrenheit. The activity includes links to related questions and additional resources online.
