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 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.
