Counting Galaxies with the Hubble Space Telescope

In this counting galaxies activity, students use a photograph taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and they divide the field into 16 square areas. They find the average number of galaxies in the cells, they find the area of one of the cells and they determine the total number of galaxies the Hubble Space Telescope detected in the photograph.
