In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to determine the size of a Mars dust storm, estimate the water content of a rain cloud, gauge how much Jupiter's Great Red Spot has shrunk and calculate the strength of a laser used to explode ice samples.

In this illustrated math problem, students use the mathematical constant pi to calculate the amount of energy put out by a laser to determine if it can explode an ice sample for analysis.

Students will make observations of two containers and identify differences in content, justify their claims and make comparisons to dark matter observations.
