Angular Measure
Rating
4.0 stars
Overview:

Students will learn about the Transit of Venus through reading a NASA press release and viewing a NASA eClips video that describes several ways to observe transits. Then students will study angular measurement by learning about parallax and how astronomers use this geometric effect to determine the distance to Venus during a Transit of Venus. This activity is part of the Space Math multimedia modules that integrate NASA press releases, NASA archival video, and mathematics problems targeted at specific math standards commonly encountered in middle school textbooks. The modules cover specific math topics at multiple levels of difficulty with real-world data and use the 5E instructional sequence.

Overview:

The story of Shrek and the movies have really made an impact.  Many children see a Shrek figure and want it.  They do not see it as ugly which is what an Ogre is supposed to be.  So, the real inspiration for Shrek Maurice Tillet lived during the early 1900’s.  He was called the “French Angel” and he was an amazing person.  It is fun to compare fiction to fact as well as opinions on what is ugly and what is pretty.
