Edited by Mary Ellen Hynes and Catherine Blair

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.

In these motivating investigations, young children engage in deep and sustained interactions with fundamental mathematical ideas; reason and communicate; identify and explore patterns and relationships; apply problem-solving strategies; and discover connections with other mathematical concepts. Sample student activities involve covering a model airplane; constructing a "veggie" space shuttle; making fizzy-tablet rockets; exploring gravity and weight; launching protractor rockets; and collecting the sun's rays over time.

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. The CD-ROM that accompanies this book features resource pages, links, and posters for your classroom.
