Special software is required to use some of the files in this section: .fits.
Overview: Students are able to connect their understanding of color to understanding a spectrum, as it is represented by scientists. They also are able to interpret what a fitting routine does to fit spectral data to a model, and are able to judge the quality of a fit.
|Activity 1||Modeling why objects produce light|
|Activity 2||Extracting and examining spectra|
|Activity 3||Kinesthetic spectrum detection model|
|Activity 4||Fitting observed spectra to models|
|Activity 5||Blackbody properties|
|Activity 6||Wrap-up project: writing about an argument|
