Data Analysis
Big question: Has Alice Springs climate changed over the last 100 years?
We are going to work individually and then as a class to analyse the average
temperatures for each month, for 5 yearly intervals from 1910.
MINIMUM TEMPERATURES
For each month, work out the mean, mode and median using a calculator.
What year?

Now lets try things using Excel.
In unmanaged data, Miss Chapman, Year 9 Maths, there is the data you need to
progress.
Follow the excel instruction document to calculate the mean, median and range
for each month of each year.
