Astronomical Scales

Students will
1. understand how scaling factors can be used to make representations of astronomical distances;
2. learn how to write and solve equations that relate real distance measurements to scaled representations of the distances; and
3. understand how the use of scientific notation makes calculations involving large numbers easier to manage.

Understanding The Universe

Students will understand the following:
1. The stages of evolution a star goes through are determined by the size of the star.
