Sun Exposition and Home Price: Geology, mathematics and economy in real life (iStage 1)


Why do apartments in the same building have different prices? Why is a flat on an upper floor more expensive than one on a lower floor? We all know that this has got something to do with light and the luminosity of rooms.

This teaching unit encourages students to conduct a field study and collect data on the surface area of apartments and windows, orientation and level of the floors as well as the prices of apartments depending on their orientation and floor level. Also, this teaching unit encourages students to examine the relationship between the varying real-estate prices, the economy, and related concepts of astronomy and earth sciences.
