In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to compare the sizes of Mars landing areas, calculate the length of a year for a distant solar system object, measure the depth of the ocean from an airplane, and determine the diameter of a debris disk.
In this board-game lesson, students learn basic computer programming skills by playing the roles of a Mars rover, scientist and engineer to make exploration decisions and accomplish science goals.
This visual math problem set gives students a chance to use the mathematical constant pi with some of the real calculations space explorers use every day.
In this cross-curricular STEM and language arts lesson, students learn about planets, stars and space missions and write STEM-inspired poetry to share their knowledge of or inspiration about these topics.
