This week we are sharing a great, multimedia-packed class activity about the theory of relativity. It was designed for learners aged 17-19 and is rich in content and different comprehension tests. After completing it your students should be able to:
explain the equivalence principle
explain how GPS receivers work
apply the theory of relativity in everyday situations
- describe the effects resulting from the general theory of relativity including the deflection of light, the precession of the orbits of planets, the slowing of time and the curvature of space.
