Here are some sun compass questions taken from previous exams. We will ask you to construct the kind of chart I showed you in lecture, so be sure you can identify the ‘rule’ that the animal follows to go in a particular direction at a particular time of day. We will give you the answers in a few days but please try to do them on your own first. If you have trouble, step through the example from class. Remember that the sun moves 15 degrees per hour across the sky. In the Northern Hemisphere, the sun is in the south at noon, but in the Southern Hemisphere, the sun is in the North at noon. HAVE FUN! You never know when you will need to navigate by the sun! 1. As part of your graduate research, you want to determine whether spiny lobsters can use the sun compass as an orientation cue. You clockshift the lobster ahead by 6 hours and release it at 12 Noon southeast of its home den. If the lobster is using a sun compass to orient, which direction will it go? PLEASE SHOW YOUR WORK TO RECEIVE FULL CREDIT. (10 pts.)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
