New A level Edexcel large data set

    Can anyone clarify the daily temperature data for the large data set please? Pearson textbook refers to "daily maximum temperature" for UK based weather stations but "daily mean temperature" for overseas. Having downloaded the dataset from Pearson's website it appears that all the weather stations have "daily mean temperature". If this is the case then we have just purchased a large number of brand new books that are incorrect. :(

    They're first editions bound to be incorrect.

    We had some training from Edexcel last week. They mentioned the change to daily mean temperature and said that the textbooks were currently being corrected. Clearly you bought your books before these corrections. I suggest that you contact Pearson.
