2-2 Model to Predict Ground-Level Ozone

Making a Simple Predictive Model for Ground-Level Ozone Activity

In this activity, students will use ozone and weather data to explore the relationship between ground-level ozone pollution and (1) maximum daily temperature, (2) average daily solar radiation, (3) average daily wind speed, and (4) daily precipitation. Students will make a simple predictive model based on the data. This activity will give students a window into the world of forecasting and a chance to engage in data analysis with real-world examples. Some previous knowledge of meteorology is recommended.
