Students determine how the angle of insolation affects the amount of energy absorbed by a surface. Students will design an experiment to determine the effect of different angles of insolation on temperature.
Students use the national weather apparent temperature data table to answer questions about the relationship between heat index and dangerous health conditions.
Students write balanced equations for a series of word equations. Students will also indicate the type of reaction as described.
Students will plot and compare actual earthquake foci data from two areas where subduction is currently occurring. One of the areas includes the Tonga Islands in the southwest Pacific
Ocean. The other area is along the coastline of Chile.
Students identify the main organelles involved in carrying out cellular and physiological processes. They will also select the organelle that they think is the most important for that process and provide a reason for their selection.
Students will investigate how distance from a large body of water affects the rate of heating and cooling at any given location. Students will analyze climographs which show the average monthly temperature and precipitation of various locations can be used to compare the rates.
Students will develop experimentally procedures in which they compare the density of a whole candy bar to half or quarter of that same candy bar. Students will complete a lab report detailing their procedures, results, and conclusions.
Students practice calculating density using mass and volume data. They will also plot the mass and volume and analyze the resulting line in order to graphically analyze density.
The purpose of this lab is to measure the density of materials which are thought to make up the crust, mantle, and core. Students will determine the mass and volume of several rock samples and then use the data to calculate density and make inferences about the densities of earth materials.
