Aim of the lesson: Students understand the importance of data in effective decision-making, and are able to find, sort, and interpret Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) rainfall data, and to collect their own data and analyse the resulting datasets.
Students will make predictions of when and how much rainfall may occur and analyse how using prior data can improve their predictions. They will access the Bureau of Meteorology to find rainfall data of their respective suburbs/areas and make a spreadsheet.
