Latitude and Longitude Part II

Latitude / Longitude Worksheet 03-2L

60 minutes! 60 seconds! Dividing degrees How many minutes in an hour?
Guess what a degree is divided into (in latitude / longitude)? 60 minutes! How many seconds in a minute? Guess what a minute is divided into (in latitude / longitude)? 60 seconds!

Homework: Lat / Long Practice

Latitude / Longitude Lab

Phone a friend at 6 am? Remember: Rotational rate = 150 / 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 15o / hour of difference from GMT.

Latitude / Longitude Lab – Reality Check
2o driving in North Dakota vs. Texas 2o = 2o 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 2o 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.
