Using measurements taken by the New Horizons spacecraft as it flew by Pluto in July 2015, students practice their math skills in a real-world application and see how new data can change scientific understanding.
This visual math problem set gives students a chance to use the mathematical constant pi with some of the real calculations space explorers use every day.
Students explore practical applications of exponents and division to investigate how NASA's Juno spacecraft became the most distant solar-powered spacecraft ever.
