Course Material 2F: Seasons
Students continue to work in their small research groups to describe and explain seasonal phenomena. They begin by documenting and describing seasonal fluctuations in the maximum angular height of the Sun, average daily temperature, maximum shadow length, and amount of daylight in a 24 hour period. After examining local seasonal trends, students analyze data from a variety of global locations. They observe and note temporal and global trends in these phenomena and modify their EMS model to account for these patterns.
