Product Description

By Michael Hynes, Julie Dixon, Michael Endress, John Kramer, Donna Moss, Vincent O'Connor, David Ortega, James Pratt

Edited by Michael C. Hynes and Juli K. Dixon

Get your students into math using outer space! Mission Mathematics translates the NASA experience into language and experiences appropriate for young learners, and provides teachers with mathematics activities that complement many of the available NASA resources for students and educators.

The materials in this book emphasize thematic modules, discourse, assessment, the formation of student teams, and mathematical content. Sample activities include making a scale model of the solar system; investigating space and speed; collecting data on Martian rocks; designing, building, and flying paper airplanes; making a windsock; analyzing the cargo space of the Space Shuttle; and studying the migration of whales. Resource pages for students are included in the appendix.

The Mission Mathematics II series
The Mission Mathematics II series is developed by NASA and NCTM in an unprecedented effort to link the science of aeronautics with the Standards that NCTM has developed for all aspects of mathematics education. Following the publication of the original Mission Mathematics series in 1997, this revision focuses on aligning the activities with NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000) in the context of aerospace activities.

The activities in each book focus on actively engaging students in NCTM's Process Standards, translating the work of engineers and scientists at NASA into language and experiences appropriate for young learners, and providing teachers with mathematics activities that complement many of the available NASA resources for students and educators.
