Eratosthenes' Teachings with a Globe in a School Yard
Bozic, Mirjana; Ducloy, Martial
Physics Education, v43 n2 p165-172 Mar 2008
A globe, in a school or university yard, which simulates the Earth's orientation in space, could be a very useful and helpful device for teaching physics, geometry, astronomy and the history of science. It would be very useful for science education to utilize the forthcoming International Year of the Planet Earth 2008 and the International Year of Astronomy 2009 by installing globes in many school and university courtyards. (Contains 10 figures and 1 table.)
