Space Math IV Educator Guide

Audience: Educators
Grades: 9-12

These activities comprise a series of 31 practical mathematics applications in space science. This collection of activities is based on a weekly series of problems distributed to teachers during the 2007-2008 school year. The problems in this booklet investigate space phenomena and math applications such as black holes, sunspots, the moon's atmosphere, scientific notation, evaluating functions, Benford's law and geometry. The problems are authentic glimpses of modern science and engineering issues, often involving actual research data. Each word problem includes background information. The one-page assignments are accompanied by one-page teachers answer keys.
