Creating & Using Physical & Graphic Models in Science

1. Creating & Using Physical & Graphic Models in Science

The earth is enormous! Studying the earth can be overwhelming because of its size and scope, so models of it are made to make it easier to understand. In this lesson, we will explore physical and graphical models, including what they are used for and how they are made.

Alternative Models in Earth & Space Science

2. Alternative Models in Earth & Space Science

In order to investigate a scientific phenomena in the Earth and space sciences, it is important to propose alternative models. In this lesson, we list such models and discuss their appropriateness.

Maps, Models & Geospatial Technologies in Scientific Research

3. Maps, Models & Geospatial Technologies in Scientific Research

Learn about how geospatial technologies are used in scientific research to figure out how phenomena vary across space. We will look at maps, models, and other geospatial technologies.

How to Read Topographic and Geologic Maps

4. How to Read Topographic and Geologic Maps

This lesson explains the main features of topographic maps, including contour lines, index contours and contour intervals. It will also cover two rules that all contours follow and discuss geologic maps and the information they contain.

How to Construct and Interpret a Scale Map

5. How to Construct and Interpret a Scale Map

This lesson will explain what a scale map is and how it represents two different things on the map expressed as a ratio. This lesson will also demonstrate the steps needed to create a scale map from any ordinary map.

Earth & Space Science Diagrams: Uses & Examples

6. Earth & Space Science Diagrams: Uses & Examples

Since the universe is so big, having a diagram of the Earth and space makes it easier to comprehend and explain. In this lesson, you'll look at some of these diagrams and learn how they're used to relay and gain scientific information.
