PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Science Garage offers this assignment to explore the relationship between the phases of the moon and the ocean tides. Students will plot predicted tide values and compare it to the phases of the moon for a specific month. They will then answer rigorous questions related to the plotted values. Predicted values for tides are used because it better shows the concept than actual recorded data, which is is effected by many other variables which obscure the moon phase - tide relationship.

Included in this zip file are both the assignment and answer key in both word format and pdf formats.

Prerequisite topics:
• Gravity
• Tides
