Latitude and Longitude Part II
Latitude / Longitude Worksheet 03-2L
Dividing degrees How many minutes in an hour? How many seconds in a minute? Guess what a degree is divided into (in latitude / longitude)? Guess what a minute is divided into (in latitude / longitude)? 60 minutes! 60 seconds!

Homework: Lat / Long Practice
Latitude / Longitude Lab
Phone a friend at 6 am? Remember: Rotational rate = 15 0 / hour
Longitude / Time Zone Problems
Latitude / Longitude Lab – Reality Check Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) Greenwich Mean Time: the time in Greenwich, England from which all Longitude is calculated east & west of the Prime Meridian using 15 o / hour of difference from GMT.
Latitude / Longitude Lab – Reality Check 2 o driving in North Dakota vs. Texas 2 o = 2 o but meridians (lines of longitude) are farther apart the closer to the Equator you are. Since Texas is closer to the Equator than South Dakota is so you would physically travel farther in Texas driving 2 o east. *** LOOK AT THE GLOBES **
Latitude / Longitude Lab – Reality Check DESCRIBE how to use latitude and longitude You would measure latitude north or south of the Equator in degrees (latitude is ALWAYS listed first) then you would measure longitude east or west of the Prime Meridian in degrees Latitude and longitude give the coordinates to pinpoint any location on Earth.
