In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to reveal the size of a planet outside our solar system, find out how much helium is raining out from Jupiter's cloud tops, locate a seismic event on Mars and study an interstellar object detected in our so

In this illustrated math problem, students use the mathematical constant pi to find the "habitable zone" around a distant star and determine which of its planets are in that zone.

In this activity, students learn how light and energy are spread throughout space. The rate of change can be expressed mathematically, demonstrating why spacecraft like NASA’s Juno need so many solar panels.
