Carolina Investigations® for AP® Environmental Science: Coriolis Effect and Atmospheric Circulation

$5.95 - $185.05

Students develop an understanding of the Coriolis effect and its influence on global air circulation. In the guided activity, they use a turntable and an inflatable globe to explore how rotation affects the apparent path of an object traveling in a straight line, then relate their findings to how this influences the movement of air masses on the earth. In the inquiry activity, students use the materials from the guided activity to build models of storm systems.
