Using Tide Data in Introductory Classes
De Jong, Marvin L.
Physics Teacher, v44 n8 p504-508 Nov 2006
Oceantides are not typically high in our consciousness here in Missouri, but in teaching astronomy and physical science the subject always comes up, and teachers of physical science and astronomy are all quite familiar with the textbook explanations. Our goal here is not to explain tides but to make some suggestions about how, on their own, students can discover relationships between hypotheses and actual evidence.
