Temperature data blog post

In our temperature data activity we used the NASA website to find climate change. This   is the link to all of our data that we recovered from different areas around the USA. Using the data we found we were able to come up with a slope of the temperature average. The slope tells us the amount that the temp. rises each year the slope that I recovered from my data was 0.0181. All the data that we gathered as a class shows the similarities in slopes. All the slopes that we gathered are within 0.1 degrees of each other. I learned that even though the temperatures in the united states all very, they all climb at a very similar rate.

  1. It would be good if you could talk a bit more about what your correlation coefficient and slope mean.
