Radiometric age dating worksheet
This is especially helpful in explaining how isochrones work, and why they are so compelling.
Try the pre- and post-tests a item multiple choice quiz providedor create your own. How sure are we about these ages?
Return to Top of Page. Students relate half-lives of radioisotopes to the application of dating rocks. If ella montgomery dating reader believes this to be the case, please let us know, and appropriate corrections will be made.
Encourage or even facilitate students to do the online Virtual Age Dating Tutorialusing a high speed internet connection, with the prospect of earning their official "Certificates of Completion as a Virtual Geochronologist".
Sequence all known radioisotopes with half-lives greater than 1 million years; look for pattern, showing that all longer-lived isotopes are still with us, and the shorter-lived ones are not, indicating a finite age of our solar system, and that its age must be in the millions or billions of years.
Have available the following items: SYNOPSIS Students get simulated "rock samples" which show a "highly magnified" selection of atoms, each sample with a different proportion of the atoms of two different elements: It's an experience they'll never forget well, maybe in time. The Deep Time dating envelopes one for each team of two, with isotope strips in them The Deep Time handouts: It's an experience they'll never forget well, maybe in time 5.
The pre- and post-test quizzes, ready to hand out optional A scaled time-line for the solar system around the classroom, if possible see our Time Machine lesson. A colorful geological map, preferably of your area on wall, or as an overhead color transparency.
Although it age just be a stand-alone lesson, it was intended to introduce our Deep Time lesson, laying the background for doing the isotope sequencing activity 15 in that lesson, then the Deep Time packet and worksheet which can be finished as a homework assignment. Do the Virtual Age Dating Tutorial onlinefor further reinforcing of half-life concept and how this is applied to dating rocks.
Consider using other items to replace the beans and popcorn. See the Time Machine lesson for specifics.
Count "atoms" in simulated rock samples of different "ages". Do the Deep Time lesson, which emphasizes why we are so confident of geological age dates.
