Url: http://mypages.iit.edu/~smile/ph9111.html
Creator: Kopsian, Eleanor
Publisher: Frazier, Franklin
Description: Authored by Eleanor Kopsian of Franklin Frazier, this is an activity intended to help students understand orbital motion and Kepler's Laws through a comparison of a circle and an ellipse and the application of Kepler's Law of Elliptical Orbits. The lesson contains objectives, vocabulary, needed materials, strategies, handouts, conclusions, evaluation questions and references. Although simple in design, this can still be a very useful resource for an instructor looking to enhance or create new curriculum.
