pumpkinsWhether you spend November raking leaves or tracking tropical storms, it's the perfect time to tie math to meteorology!

During the fall, we'll notice changes in temperature, the amount of rain and/or snow, and the hours of daylight. In this month's feature, we'll connect math to different weather measurements. The first activity will look at temperature, the second concerns wind chill, and the third rain/snowfall.
