Students are required to carry out a coordinated investigation in math and science of the changing patterns of the length of day from a global perspective. This learning experience is especially geared toward 8th grade math or 8th/9th grade earth science students. The goal is for students to experience real-life, multi-step tasks that encourages critical thinking and analysis. The activity also helps students expand their reasoning and make a connection between mathematics, science, and other disciplines.
