Notes

I simplified the dataset. We only explored statewise temperature trends and I aggregated the flowering data for each species across all the divisions. Also I assigned each pair of students a particular flower (there was overlap). I had them first graph by hand then use excel. I had them hand draw the best fit line and then we pooled the data to see the general trends. They then used excel and added the trend lines and we compared hand graphed data to excel.
