PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Finding the Solar Parallax Trigonometry Unit includes 196 PowerPoint slides, lab activities, homework, and rubric. PowerPoint presentations are included to help guide students through each lab experiment as well as how to calculate the Law of Sines and understand basic sines, cosines and tangents.
This project involves discovering how trigonometry can be used in calculating the solar parallax of distant stars. The goal is to show students how an object can appear to jump from one position to another by changing vantage points, and how this same technique can be used to find the distance of far away objects as well as their height.
