In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to calculate the size of a Mars rock sample, compare the mirrors of two space telescopes, deduce an asteroid's makeup, and size up a solar eclipse.

In this illustrated math problem, students use pi to figure out how much of the Sun’s disk will be covered by the Moon during an eclipse and whether it’s a total or annular eclipse.

In this lesson, students use their knowledge of moon phases to build a calendar they can use to find out when and where to see each phase of the Moon throughout the year. Calendar for 2023 now available for download!

In this illustrated problem set, students use the mathematical constant pi to solve real-world science and engineering problems related to craters on Mars, a total solar eclipse, a daring orbit about Saturn, and the search for habitable worlds.
