It wasn't until well into the 20th century that enough information had accumulated about the rate of radioactive decay that the age of rocks and fossils in number of years could be determined through radiometric age dating.
This activity on determining age of rocks and fossils is intended for 8th or 9th grade students.
Dating is not necessary to demonstrate that evolution is a fact.
2) To familiarize students with the concept of half-life in radioactive decay.
3) To have students see that individual runs of statistical processes are less predictable than the average of many runs (or that runs with relatively small numbers involved are less dependable than runs with many numbers).
This is why the element emits radiation, and why it's a natural choice for the induced fission that nuclear power plants require.
Uranium is a common element on Earth and has existed since the planet formed.
The first practical application of a radioisotope was made by a Hungarian man named George de Hevesy in 1911.
