Chance & Data – Maths Investigation

Your local council has asked you to submit a report on the weather in your local area, and to make a recommendation as to when to hold the local show.

Investigate the best time of year to hold this event.

Your report needs to include data to justify the decision you have made.

– Research and record the local average monthly minimum and maximum temperatures for January to December.

– Plot the average monthly temperatures on a line graph with a graduated scale.

– Research and record the average monthly rainfall for your area. Show this average monthly rainfall on a column (bar) graph.
