Allometry in Biological Systems
This is a laboratory exercise appropriate for sophomore level students. No prior math is required, and lab exercise can be adapted if computer facilities are available.
Students investigate the accuracy of sundials and the discrepancy that lies between "real time" and "clock time." They track the position of the sun during the course of a relatively short period of time as they make a shadow plot, a horizontal sundial, and a diptych sundial. (The activity may be abridged to include only one or two of the different sundials, instead of all three.)
