- How would you start if you wanted to design a sundial around a flagpole near your home?
- What would it take to "set" your sundial to the right time?
9. Sketch a map view of a flagpole area and show the times that the flagpole's shadow would indicate when it pointed west, north, and east.
Sundials can be useful locally, but if you could view a large number of them from different locations, all at the same time, you would see that their shadows point in different directions. Thus, if we relied on sundials for timekeeping, every location on Earth would have its own unique time.
