Weather for Sailing, Flying & Snow Sports
following maps help you locate the flying, snow-sports, and sailing
case-study locations that are used in this course. Abbreviations:
LG = Learning Goals, and BC = British Columbia.
To teach some of the concepts without using equations, we use
graphical tools. Some of these tools have been created by others,
and others were created by us. All these graphical tools are
collected here, along with the Learning Goals (LG) where they were
introduced and demonstrated:
Final-Exam Tools Provided
We provide a black & white version of the graphical tools with the
final exam. You will find them as the last pages of the final
exam booklet. Thus, you do NOT need to copy these tools into your
own "crib sheet" that you bring to the exam. Nonetheless, you
should review how to use them during your review before the final exam.
