Space Math VI Educator Guide

Audience: Educators
Grades: 5-12

These activities comprise a series of 110 practical mathematics applications in space science. This collection of activities is based on a weekly series of problems distributed to teachers during the 2009-2010 school year. The problems in this booklet investigate science phenomena and mathematics applications such as molecules, the Keeling Curve, solar irradiance, fractions, percentages, solving for x, geometry and trigonometry. 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.
