In this activity, students will use sea-level rise data to create models and compare short-term trends to long-term trends. They will then determine whether sea-level rise is occurring based on the data.

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 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.

Students explore practical applications of exponents and division to investigate how NASA's Juno spacecraft became the most distant solar-powered spacecraft ever.
