This is a backward design lab where students are given the data of the percent abundances of common elements in the universe. They are to then write the procedures on how they would obtain the data and analyze the data using Excel to draw conclusions based upon their analysis of the data.
Students should be familiar with Excel from math classes. However, you may wish to refresh their memory, and circulate among them and assist as needed.
Answers will vary but hopefully students will arrive at the conclusion that the universe started as the smallest atoms, H and He and has, over time, evolved new elements.
