Overview
This module explores mathematics and computational thinking in science by using the Hertzsprung-Russell (H-R) diagram to classify stars. Students will analyze data to recognize patterns of star type given the absolute magnitude and surface temperature. Students will discover the relationships between different types of stars by graphing stars of the constellation Orion.
