The last subject we will examine before the Unit Exam will be Galileo. Galileo is considered the Father of Science who  laid the foundation for modern physics and astronomy. Galileo was the first to use a telescope to view the moon, planets and the heavens and came to the conclusion that Copernicus’ Heliocentric Theory was correct but Galileo faced opposition from the Roman Catholic Church that had made the Geocentric Theory a cardinal doctrine.  We will view a short powerpoint and then complete a worksheet with guided reading and comparing and contrasting Bacon & Descartes.
