Rotation of the Milky Way. Kinesthetic Activity - Teacher's Guide
|This material (docx, doc, pdf) has been prepared by Alexander Rudolph for the EU-HOUMW in the course of his sabbatical in UPMC, Paris.
The activity performed on 5th April 2012 at UPMC in Paris in the course of the EU-HOU Comenius teacher training is displayed in the video. It is intended to provide a practical view of the main concepts used to analyse the HI data acquired with the EU-HOUMW SRT network or through the archive data or simulator mode tool.
Understanding the Rotation of the Milky Way Using Radio Telescope Observations
to reproduce the main results achieved through the kinesthetic activity using the EU-HOUMW Web interface.
A special emphasis is put on the concepts (Doppler shifts, rotations) present in the physics used to analyse HI data.
