PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How often is the weatherman’s forecast correct? Engage your class in a mathematical investigation to find out! Students will record their findings in tables, convert percentages to fractions, and create line plots to display data (4.MD.B.4, 5.MD.B.2). Two versions of this product are included.

In Version 1, students use actual predictions. The file includes data sheets and tables for recording snowfall data by the day or by the hour. You may also pick from three line plot sheets: with fractions labeled and reduced, with directions for students to label, or with directions for students to label and reduce. Choose one format for all students or use multiple formats to differentiate.

Version 1 Table of Contents
• Explanation of Chance and Probability
• Snowfall Data Sheet by Date
• Snowfall Data Sheet by Time (Students record actual data for ten or less hours.)
