In this lesson, students use their knowledge of moon phases to build a calendar they can use to find out when and where to see each phase of the Moon throughout the year. Calendar for 2023 now available for download!
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.
In this illustrated problem set, students use pi to detect frost in lunar craters, determine the density of Mars' liquid core, calculate the powered output from a dam, and find out how far a spacecraft travels as it returns data to Earth.
