Desmos Burning Daylight

In this activity, students use sinusoids to model daylight data for two US cities (Fairbanks, AK and Miami, FL). They predict which city has more total daylight during a given year, and then use their model to calculate an answer to that question. (They may be in for a surprise!). Edited by Becky Hall.
