Short description

Using a photograph of the Moon’s disk (near the full moon) students compare the size of craters of the Moon with Plato crater (101 km in diameter). They record the data and calculate the errors of their measurements. The students process the error data in a graph and create circles corresponding to the craters on Google Earth.
