Students can learn a basic method in climate modeling by analyzing temperature datasets and plotting a graph, indicating scenarios for the pre-industrial era, business-as-usual, and forecasting changes up to 2050. This procedure is valid, and the resource is recommended for teaching.
Numeric Reasoning: Number Systems (6-8)
6.NS.C.8 Graph points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane to solve problems in authentic contexts. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.
ESS3: Earth and Human Activity
6.ESS3.5 Ask clarifying questions based on evidence about the factors that have caused climate change over the past century.
