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.
In this illustrated math problem, students use the mathematical constant pi to calculate the amount of energy put out by a laser to determine if it can explode an ice sample for analysis.
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.
Students learn about Saturn's scientifically intriguing moon Enceladus and investigate its fascinating features, including its ocean and plumes, using math.
