In this activity, the principle of moments is applied to rotating systems to demonstrate the concept of a barycenter, or center of mass, and how objects in orbit around each other move. Students then consolidate this concept by calculating the centre of mass in a number of astronomical contexts.

In this unit, students will learn about Kepler's three laws. Students will also learn about the orbits of satellites and how to mathematically represent satellite motion. Lessons in this unit include: Kepler's Three Laws; Circular Motion Principles for Satellites; Mathematics of Satellite Motion; Weightlessness in Orbit; and Energy Relationships for Satellites. This unit includes animations and mini quizzes to check for understanding and facilitate learning.

Students review Kepler's three laws of planetary motion, defining the parts of an ellipse and describing the calculation of the eccentricity of an ellipse and associated orbital path. In an associated hands-on activity "Constructing Orbits," students will model orbits using string and calculate the eccentricities of the orbits they construct.

Students will use an elliptical board to obtain speed and distance measurements for an object in an elliptical orbit. The results are then plotted on a graph of speed against time in order to understand how gravity effects (or changes) the speed of a planet or a satellite in an elliptical orbit.

The NAAP Motions of the Sun Lab reviews some of the material from the Basic Coordinates and Seasons Lab and The Rotating Sky Lab and adds information to put all the pieces together for a more complete description of the motions of the sun. Computation of meridional altitude and stellar visibility are also introduced.

Students will use a paper plate and a football field to address a common misconception about the motion of the moon - that the moon "loops" around the earth - when in fact the path of the moon is always concave to the sun. At a distance of 100 yards - goal line to goal line - the plate is about the radius of the moon's orbit, and the width of the field represents about 30 degrees or 1 month. In an extension activity, students can investigate barycenter.
