http://www.mathmetics.org/

mathMETics is a fun activity-based lesson tool for teachers and mathematics pupils in years 9 and 12, looking at the role of mathematics in weather observation and forecasting.  The lesson plans will take you through a variety of exercises including collecting weather data and adding it into the Met Office Weather Observation Website, and running a forecast for your local area.  The lessons are set out for each year group, and can also be undertaken as a collaboration between years 9 and 12.

The mathMETics project was designed to demonstrate the role of mathematics in meteorology, by using mathematics lessons and activites to investigate weather observation and forecasting. The project was developed by Alexander Todd, under the supervision of Peter Ashwin and Christopher Ferro as part of CliMathNet. The mathMETics website was produced by Alexander Todd and David Leppla-Weber with CliMathNet.
