Hurricanes in the Upper Midwest.
Gravelle, John D.
This document describes the procedures used by one group of Wisconsin high school students to compile data researched on all hurricanes in the Atlantic from 1886 through 1993. The students used data received on Internet to create a hypercard stack that would plot hurricanes. Students from Minnehaha Academy in Minnesota used the net to download images of famous (and not so famous) hurricanes. The Wisconsin students used linear equations to solve mathematical problems encountered while plotting hypercard data. Computer students at the high school were responsible for making the equations into functions (as in computer language functions). Students ignored the importance of developing computer code that is clearly documented. Fifth graders tested the computer programs. (AA)
