This is a lesson about observation. Learners will look at nine nights of observations of the positions of Jupiter's four largest moons in relation to Jupiter and construct a data graph that allows them to calculate the orbital period of each moon.... (View More)

This is an activity about satellite size. Learners will calculate the volume of the IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration) satellite, the first satellite mission to image the Earth's magnetosphere. They will then determine the... (View More)

This is an activity about using large numbers in astronomy. Learners will first estimate how long it would take to count to a billion, if it was a full-time job. Then, they will judge their estimates using a calculator to get a more definitive... (View More)

This is an activity about interpretation of a data graph. Learners will use mathematics to create a pie chart of percentages and answer accompanying questions. This is the fourth activity in the Solar Storms and You: Exploring Satellite Design... (View More)

This is an activity about digital imagery and technology. Learners will create a picture using graph paper containing ones and zeroes and instruct others to reproduce it without showing it to them, just like digital technology. After, in groups,... (View More)

This is an activity about measuring craters using shadows and geometry. Learners will make a model crater and use a light source to make a shadow. When they are familiar with the techniques for estimating depths from shadows, they will apply their... (View More)

Audience: High school

This is an activity about scale model building. Learners will use mathematics to determine the scale model size, construct a pattern, and build a one-fourth size scale model of the IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration)... (View More)

This is an activity about scale model building. Learners will use mathematics to determine the scale model size, construct a pattern, and build a paper scale model of the IMAGE (Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora Global Exploration) satellite, the... (View More)

This is an activity about graph interpretation. Learners will compare, interpret, and discuss four graphs of the speed, temperature, magnetic field strength, and density of a coronal mass ejection as it swept past Earth in 1997. This is the third... (View More)

This is an activity about the solar activity cycle. Learners will construct a graph to identify a pattern of the number of observed sunspots and the number of coronal mass ejections emitted by the Sun over a fifteen year time span. A graphing... (View More)
