Google of the Week (google**10)

This week’s newest set of googled links are to variety of sites that make great use of visuals to further the understanding of scales of magnitude, some great educational resources lie within…

This Google Link takes you on a tour from the very tiny to the unimaganiably large:

First off the lucky link is the Florida State University Molecular Expressions site, an educational site on microscopy that uses Java effectively to demonstrate the natural world from the scale of the Milky Way down to the sub atomic scale of protons and electrons. A good set of student and teacher resources for activities and lessons.

Next is the official Powersof10.com site based on the works of the books original authors Charles and Ray Eames. Quick links take you from 10-18 (a quark) to 103 (Chicago) to 1025 (super clusters of Galaxy). Explore dimensions of time and space on this site. Lot’s more to see.
