A Matter of Timing

In this orbital period learning exercise, students solve 2 problems about satellites and their orbits. They determine how many days it takes for two satellites to be in "opposition", they find the least common factor between their orbit periods and they draw concentric circles of their orbits. Students also determine how long it will take two planets to return to their current location knowing their orbit periods.
