#### Simplification of Radical Expressions: Richter Scale Exponents

Shake up your lessons with with a radical resource. Scholars use a slider to view the Richter scale magnitude and amplitude of historical earthquakes. They use powers of 10 to compare the amplitudes of different earthquakes.

Lesson Planet

#### Shake it up with Seismographs!

Shake things up in your STEM or earth science classroom when you have small groups construct their own seismographs. A reading assignment on the history of seismographs, the Richter scale, and current technology sets the stage for the...

Lesson Planet

#### Magnitude of the Richter Scale

Students examine how a Richter scale operates. They create a booklet illustrating each rating on the scale. They discover how engineers use different measurement tools.

Lesson Planet

#### Earth Exponential

In this Earth exponential worksheet, students identify and complete 6 different problems that include the strength of earthquakes on Earth. First, they define Richter scale and what it measures. Then, students complete the chart shown to...

#### QuakeFeed Earthquake Map, Alerts and News

Amateur seismologists explore Earth's earthquakes in real time using a variety of map styles and parameter selections.

Lesson Planet

#### Evaluating an Illinois Earthquake

Students develop awareness of occurrences of earthquakes in Illinois and their past and potential future damage, and examine distribution of earthquakes in central U.S. regions.

Lesson Planet

#### How Do We Measure Earthquakes?

How is the magnitude of an earthquake measured? How is the intensity of an earthquake measured? What is amplitude in relation to an earthquake? In what country was the largest magnitude earthquake? There is a wealth of information about...

Lesson Planet

#### Earthquake Detector

Students investigate earthquakes and describe the interactions inside the Earth that cause them to occur. Then they research the equipment and systems for detection and measurement of earthquakes. Students also build and engage in a...
