External Resource: Space Math - 1

External Resource

This problem set is a NASA collection of algebraic activities based on space science. Extensions for students looking for additional challenges in the math and physical science curriculum in grades 7 through 9. The problems are designed to be authentic glimpses of modern engineering issues that come up in designing satellites to work in space, and to provide insight into the basic phenomena of the Sun-Earth system, specifically ‘Space Weather’. The problems are designed to be ‘one-pagers’ student work sheets. Teacher’s Guide and Answer Key included. Topics include: Sun-Earth system, space weather, auroras, radiation effects, solar flares, CMEs, solar storms, satellite orbit decay, solar electricity, solar power decay, formulae, solving for x, plasmasphere, plasma clouds, Pythagorean theorem, magnetic forces and particle motion, solar wind, kinetic energy, and voltage.
