In this hands-on activity, students explore the relationship between angular width, actual size, and distance by using their finger, thumb and fist as a unit of angular measurement. They should learn to relate angular width to actual size using distance; quantify the relationship between angular width and distance; and understand why the Sun appears smaller from Pluto than from Earth.

In this lab and activity section, students learn to appreciate and understand the scope of science: from the very large and far away, to the very tiny and close-up. A video teaches students about exponential notation and how powers of ten work. The visual clip begins 10 million light years from Earth, moving through space to the Earth, and down to the subatomic world of protons and electrons in powers ... Full description.

This lesson provides an introduction (or refresher) of the concept of graphs in Cartesian coordinates, starting with graphs of a straight line and a simple parabola. It is part of a high school course on astronomy, Newtonian mechanics and spaceflight. The implicit relationship x2+y2 = R2 for a circle is given, and from that the Cartesian equation of an ellipse is developed. Students will learn or ... Full description.
