We started looking at the monthly cycle of tides. This is an inquiry project that should challenge you find patterns and discover which causes the highest tides of the month: (1) the distance between the Earth and the Moon or (2) the phase (position) of the moon. Due Monday 1/22
Today we started looking at the phases of the moon. We will be using what we learn in an inquiry project to determine what causes the highest and lowest tides of the month.
It's there. It's the moon. What do we think we know about it?
Today we explored the relative sizes and distances of near Earth objects including the moon and the International Space Station. Due Friday 1/5
Today we finish up both our pendulum work and the black hole formation lab. Tomorrow we will all be back in the same place.
What did each period do today?
3, 5, 6, 7 - Black Hole Formation Lab Day 2 - see previous posting for handout. This can be done at home if you have a balloon and foil. We have time to work on analysis and explore black holes. See links below. Due Friday 12/15
8 - Pendulums Day 3 - Working with data
