Students will understand
how latitude and season
affect duration of insolation.
The purpose of this long term
investigation is to use the internet
to collect and organize latitude,
date and duration of insolation
data to help generalize the
relationship between latitude,
season and duration of insolation.
Google Earth will be used to locate
various cities, towns or villages on
approximately similar longitudes
but widely different latitudes.
Students will then use internet
resources to find and record
sunrise and sunset times for each
Students will then analyze their
collected data to generalize how
duration of insolation changes with
changing latitude and season.
