Project #2 Option A-Create an Earthquake Be Precise-Transfer data onto a graph Discern-Obtain data from a scientific resources Plan-Develop and apply necessary steps for academic achievement
You are going to be creating your own earthquake and its seismographic data. You will be using the same steps you take to triangulate an epicenter, except this time you will create them yourselves! You will be creating a solvable triangulation scenario, similar to the ones you’ve solved in class. Be sure you can solve it, someone else will have to!
Steps for creation:
Select a map you would like to use and select three cities. Any map works! Make sure the map has a scale or you will have to make your own!
Play around with a compass until you decide on the exact distances you want from each city (You decide where the epicenter will be)
Work backwards to determine what the difference in arrival times would have to be to get the distance you want.
Design your own seismograph recording that would show the difference in arrival times.
Make sure you transfer your information into the correct template.
Try your design out multiple times. You should be able to solve it and get the correct epicenter.
Steps for submission:
Fill in all the information for location #1 and draw the circle.
Location #2 & #3 should be left blank.
Project #2 Option B-Journey to the Center of the Earth Communicate-Communicate the relationship between variables Conclude-Form conclusions from textual evidence Plan-Develop and apply necessary steps for academic achievement
DIRECTIONS: Part 1: You have been provided with 2 excerpts from Jules Verne’s 1864 classic, Journey to the Center of the Earth. For part 1 of this project you will write a short analysis of the two excerpts focusing on: How does the story promote scientific misconceptions. In your analysis be sure to:
Answer: Exactly what are the scientific misconceptions the book promotes?
How do you know the misconceptions you’ve identified are inaccuracies?
Use knowledge from the ESRT where relevant
State of Matter
Incorporate at least 2 outside sources (books, .gov/.org/ .edu websites, newspaper articles) to support your analysis
