Subjunctive in Relative Clauses
Reference guides provide information quickly and easily, so as you begin your unit on the subjunctive, distribute this guide to your learners. The first half provides examples and explanations for using the subjunctive in relative clauses. There's a practice opportunity located at the bottom of the page that has learners circle the correct form of the verb for eight sentences.

What Orbital Dynamic Variables Are Responsible For Earth's Weather?
Students construct an Earth/Sun model of planet revolution that incorporates the orbital geometry concepts. They record Earth/Sun relative distance and Sun nadir observations acquired from model simulation of Earth's relative position and geometry at each solstice and equinox.

Cepheid Variables 1
Sal provides a brief history of Henrietta Swan Leavitt, who first discovered super massive stars called Cepheids. He explains what she found, what she observed, and how she was able to apply her observation of relative luminosity of Cepheids to determine distances in space.

Sal defines and explains the premise of Hubble's Law and then uses trigonometry to show the relationship between velocity and distance. He explains that as the universe expands, objects get farther away from each other; as objects move away from each other, the relative velocity increases proportionally to the relative distance.

My Angle on Cooling: Effects of Distance and Inclination
Learners discuss what heat is and how it travels. They discover that one way to cool an object in the presence of a heat source is to increase the distance from it or change the angle at which it is faced.

What Is Inside the Atom?
Four lessons make up this mini unit about atomic structure and spectra. A pretest is provided to give an idea of what is already known about the atom. Through a series of demonstrations and lecture, you present the information to young chemists.

Let's Plot Points
Use coordinate grid paper to plot points and identify shapes that are already plotted on the paper by saying their coordinates. Pupils also measure the distance between points and play the game Battleship. There are several web links and handouts included.

Parallax in Observing Stars
Parallax is the apparent change of an object determined by the line of sight. Sal defines the concept of parallax and applies it to how we determine the relative distance between us and near-by stars. He draws a diagram to illustrate what relative distance means in relation to the Stars, Earth, Sun, rotation, and orbital ellipse.

The Battle for Ultimate Power
Students gain an understanding of how the powers of 10 and scientific notation can be used to represent the scale of things in the universe. They relate the number of stars in the universe to the number of grains of sand on Earth's beaches.

Subtract Integers Using Distance on a Number Line
A hard concept to teach is why a double negative becomes a positive. The number line in this video demonstrates how the minus sign relates to the distance between two numbers. Show your learners how subtracting a negative number means to find the distance between those two numbers which adds them together.

Surveying the Ancient World
Astrolabes have been used by explorers and astronomers throughout the ages. But how exactly do they work and what can a young mathematician do with one today? Students will build a simple version of this tool and then using the altitude, measure the height of various objects.

Convert Measurements to Solve Distance Problems
As the first of a series of five lessons on solving word problems involving converting measurement data, this resource is a great piece to incorporate a unit on the topic. A review of basic metric system measurements begins the learning, along with a discussion on understanding the relative sizes of units.
