Mathalicious: Temp Work

How has Earth’s temperature changed over time?

Scientists say there’s a difference between weather and climate. Even if a given month is cooler than average, the long-term trend shows that Earth has gotten warmer over the past century.

In this lesson, students use positive and negative integers to compare recorded monthly temperatures to their long-term averages and consider actions they can take to take care of the planet.
