  • 13. What do you know about the moon?
  • 14. Graphical Dictionaries
  • 15. How big is the moon?
  • 16. How far away is the moon?
  • 17. How far?
  • 18. How are craters formed? How do you think lunar craters are formed?
  • 19.
    • How does height affect crater size?
    • How does mass of impactor affect crater size?
    • How does angle of impact affect crater size?
    • How does the material of the surface affect crater size?
    Impact Craters
  • 20.
    • What do you measure when you measure craters?
    • How do you measure the area of an irregular shape?
    Measuring Craters

  • 23.
    • How can you measure the scale of a lunar image?
    Measuring Craters From a Distance 700 m (500 pixels)
  • 24.
    • Suppose that over a period of 100,000 years, four asteroids struck the lunar surface.
    • What would be the probability that they would strike an already-cratered area, or the lunar mare, where there are few craters?
    Crater Probability
  • 25.
    • What can we learn from creating our own lunar impacts?
    LCROSS
  • 26. Exploring the Moon
  • 27. Moon Math Supplemental Guide Students will: 1) approximate the area and volume of a classroom-made crater, 2) calculate and compare the scale of lunar craters to classroom craters, and 3) observe how the size, mass, and angle of impact of a projectile affect the area and volume of a crater. Moon Math: Craters!
