Students learn about Saturn's scientifically intriguing moon Enceladus and investigate its fascinating features, including its ocean and plumes, using math.
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.
What is sea-level rise and how does it affect us? This "Teachable Moment" looks at the science behind sea-level rise and offers lessons and tools for teaching students about this important climate topic.
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.
