A Mars rover collected the following temperature data over 1.6 Martian days. A Martian day is called a sol. Use the graph to answer the following questions (use interval notation to describe the intervals). 1. Approximately when does each graph change from increasing to decreasing? From decreasing to increasing? 2. When is the air temperature increasing? 3. When is the ground temperature decreasing? 4. What is the air temperature change on this time interval? 5. Why do you think the ground temperature changed more than the air temperature? Is that typical on Earth? 6. Is there a time when the air and ground were the same temperature? Explain how you know.
