Looking up information about Mars.
A student uses Cartesian Coordinates to sketch out the approximate planetary orbits.
Reviewing key terms and begins typing up her Lab Report.
The approximate orbits begin to take shape as we add more data points.
Time to double check the math and perfect the approximate orbits!
Our two-dimensional "night sky" where we will record planetary movement using a laser and marker.
Students begin to model the planetary orbits in three dimensions.
Adding stars to the night sky for a more realistic background.
The night sky looks great!
After making points with the laser, students connect the dots to simulate the movement of Mars.
Connecting two spaced out data points.
