Video 6 Conclusion of Week 3.
Interactive feature not available in single page view (see it in standard view).

Now is a good time to revisit the learning outcomes for this week. Here is a summary of what you have covered.

  • You have revisited logarithmic graphs (Section 1) and looked at how powers of ten can be used to give an order of magnitude from the very large (clusters of galaxies) down to the very small (atoms and below).

  • You have also looked at quantum science, quantum biology, LASERs, metrology, clocks, and communication and security, as well as the double-slit experiment and diffraction effects.

  • You have interpreted Figure 2 (a logarithmic picture) and extracted key information in Activity 3.

  • You have read an online article in Section 8.

Next week you will read three online articles and use the PROMPT strategy to verify their authenticity. Next week is also the Week 4 compulsory badge quiz!

Now go to Week 4 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
