divide into your groups
Divide into your groups
  • You may ask 3 questions
  • I will only answer the question being asked
  • Work together in your groups
    • EVERYONE participates
    • You will grade each other by participation
    • You cannot come up with a design until EVERYONE agrees to it
  • Come up with an idea
    • No modern appliances
  • Write some procedures
  • The other group will perform those procedures
  • We will be determining which groups procedures were most effective
  • We will celebrate success
plant station
Plant Station
  • Please perform the other teams’ procedures
  • When complete please allow Animal station to perform your procedures.
  • Plant Station: Please explain/show us your answer
  • Animal Station: Please explain/show us your answer
finding the length of the room
Finding the length of the room
  • But was that the question?
  • Did you use the thumb method, (Parallax)?
  • This lesson is called parallax, did you follow directions?
distance from whiteboard to earth
Distance from whiteboard to Earth
  • Using only the knowledge from shifting thumbs how can you determine the distance between the whiteboard to the Earth on the other side of the class room?
can we do it
Can we do it?

can we do it1
Can we do it?

Hold the arm with the finger stretched. You can see the object

Measure the distance between your eyes with a ruler.

Measure b with your angle-measuring tool.

Make a drawing on scale and find from that the distance between your eyes and your finger.

Control the answer by measuring this distance directly with a ruler or a tape measure.


Place thumb directly in front of the globe right in the center at two different distances (d') from the cabinet. Measure and record the distance, d', for each thumb

Center the first with one eye, measure how far the object is from the center line (this is your b' measurement for the eye). Then close your other eye and center the globe measure how far the globe is from the center line (this is your b' measurement for the second eye).

Now move one meter to the right of the straight-on position. Again, center the globe and measure how far it is from the center line.

Average your left and right measurements for each object to get b'.

Use the ratio   s'/b' = s/b   to calculate the distance s to each object.


Subtract the angle formed by the thumb and the reference point from the angle formed by the object to get the first angle required to calculate the parallax angle.

    • Call it angle A. Suppose it is equal to 15 degrees
  • Move to the another location repeat procedure: record the angle to the object and the reference point and subtract one from another to find the difference.
    • Call it Angle B. Suppose it is equal to 14.5 degrees.
  • Subtract angle B from angle A to determine the parallax angle.
    • In the example, parallax angle equals 0.5 degrees.
  • Measure the distance between point A and point B using a measuring tape. Call it AB.
    • Suppose it equals 10 m.
  • Use the formula distance equals (AB * 360) / ( 2 * pi * parallax angle) to calculate the distance to the object.
    • In this example, (10 * 360) / (2 * 3.14 * 0.5) equals 287 meters.
2 nd period day one
2nd Period Day One
  • Team Parallax quantum fysiks
    • Jonah (Leader)
    • Working more as a group
    • Bonding
    • No parallax
    • Questions for tomorrow
    • Tape hint
    • Door
    • Estimate
    • Anger increases ad I remind not modern appliances
    • Ready for procedures
    • Interview members
  • The Crazy Scientists
    • Isaac (Leader)
    • Breaking into subgroups
      • Two plans (one using parallax, one measuring)
      • Lots off task
      • Writing procedures and questions for tomorrow
  • Day one all lost questions within 15 min
  • Spent 10 Min. arguing about the questions rule
  • Spent ~10 deciding what questions to ask tomorrow
2 nd period day two
2nd Period Day Two
  • Team Parallax quantum fysiks
    • Jonah (Leader)
      • Still working on Questions
      • Remind to work together
      • Trying to get an answer
      • Question used
      • Question used: Can we use the meter stick?
      • Separation of groups to measure cabinets
      • Lab station to wall “add measurement of hand”
      • Measuring to globe
      • Ask last question or use calculator choose long hand
      • One group member does not know what is going on, Ask Group why, Angry response as those listening state they don’t either but they are participating.
  • The Crazy Scientists
    • Isaac (Leader)
      • Start measuring with a ruler
      • Ask how that applies to thumbs (Shut ups)
      • Rearrange classroom (tables) “measure angles”, “Never said not to use table length”
      • Discuss team leadership no one know who it is. Reset and get on track, use time wisely
      • Use second Question
      • Write procedures
3 rd period day 2
3rd Period Day 2
  • Purple Sharks
    • Discuss One group Bringing new member up to date
    • Still not cohesive give them the rally cry. Team leader: “put hands on table so I know you are listening”
    • Q: can we read procedures?
    • Q: Can we literally read them?
    • Two interviews two procedures ask for more detail no nasty sandwiches
    • Q: can we stand on the table?
    • Re-write procedures
    • Working together one member asks about scale
  • Team Henry Foster 2k14
    • Discussion
    • Question: Can we use a ruler?
    • Two plans Team Leader instructs to test both procedures out
    • One team member only knows one of the procedures remind all need to know
    • Measure globe with ruler
    • Try “secret thing” not all know what that is
    • Go on “field trip” some members still don’t know what’s going on
    • Interview with team leader to ensure she still has the power over the group
    • Field Trip to white board
    • Team leader: Do you have all the information you need? You can come back.
