The towns in the “TBAG” region (Tumut, Batlow, Adelong and Gundgai) are familiar to the students at the two schools I hope to teach at in 2022. Many of the students come from rural environments where a close eye is kept on the weather. I have extracted data from http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/data/index.shtml and placed into Excel (cutting and pasting data automatically puts it into Excel cells). I then used the graphing function to create the graphs shown.
There is lots for students to analyse here and the format of the data allows teachers to select the data and its format (eg decimal places) that would be suitable for different cohorts. Older student can also analyse the ‘usefulness’ of the data by looking at when and for how long the data had been collected
