Abstract

Description

Introduction: Astronomers determine the properties of white dwarfs based on observations using a telescope and light sensitive instruments. Students will follow many of the same steps astronomers do to find the basic properties of a white dwarf. During their investigation, students will draw on mathematics skills (algebra) and geometry concepts.
