In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to detect frost in lunar craters, determine the density of Mars' liquid core, calculate the powered output from a dam, and find out how far a spacecraft travels as it returns data to Earth.

In this challenge, students will program a rover to use a color sensor on several rock samples, allowing them to simulate how the Mars Curiosity rover uses its ChemCam instrument to analyze light emitted from geological samples on Mars.

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.
