Seeing Solar Storms in STEREO-II

In this solar storms worksheet, students use a diagram given the location of two STEREO spacecraft satellites, a coronal mass ejection, the sun and the Earth to solve 2 problems about the coronal mass ejection. Students use segments, angles and trigonometric identities to determine the length of a segment in the diagram. They determine the length the coronal mass ejection traveled and the time it took to travel that length.

What an awesome site! I have been able to find so many great starter ideas that I have been able to work from, expand, or simply use as written. Many of the history lessons are so well thought-out and complete. Wonderful!
