Students will be able to distinguish between, and use appropriately, astronomical units and light years.

Collection Contents


Students convert sun-planet distances from "millions of miles" to "miles", then to scientific notation of "miles". Next, students use a formula to calculate astronomical units from "miles". Students cross-check their answers using a website converter. Last, students label their solar system model with AU and scientific notation for each sun-planet distance.
