Your science teacher is planning several cooking activities using a solar oven, which cooks food by using heat from the sun. Clear and scattered skies provide the most sunlight for the oven to use. Your job is to estimate cloud cover at your school over a two week period, in both the morning and the afternoon, to figure out when the oven can be used most efficiently.
