WALT find the difference between + and - numbers: Temperature range

In Auckland we have some warm days and some cool days.  Some countries get extremely hot weather and some countries get extremely cold weather.  There are even some countries that get extremely hot and extremely cold weather.

Today we are going to find out where these countries are and just how hot and cold they get.

Take a look at this site

You can find almost any city in the world that you would have heard of.  See if you can find Auckland- Newmarket.  You should bring up a page of data that looks like this...

°F ]   °C
Average Temperature

Average High Temperature

Average Low Temperature


February has the warmest average 
 What is the average temperature in February?  
But within any day, it gets warmer and colder depending on what time it is.

What is average highest daily temperature in Feb?  What about the average low daily temperature?
What is the difference between these two temperatures?

23.5 - 17 = 6.5 °C

Which month has the warmest average temperatures?  Which month has the coolest?
What is the difference between these temperatures?
23.5 - 9 = 14.5 C

Now look at Moscow (Asia/ Russia/ Moscow) and answer these questions...
1) What is the warmest month and what is its temperature?
2) What is the coldest month and what is its temperature?
3) What is the difference between these temperatures?

Now find some more cities.  We are looking for cities that have extreme temperature ranges so find ones that get below freezing in winter and get really hot in summer.  Answer the 3 questions above for each city you find.

To prove you can find the difference between + and - numbers, submit 1 city (the one with the most extreme temperatures) and the answers to the 3 questions via Edmodo.
