What's on Your Radar Screen? Distance-Rate-Time Problems from NASA

Gregory Condon, Miriam Landesman, Agnes Calasanz-Kaiser 

August 2006, Volume 12, Issue 1, Page 6

Abstract:
NASA's FlyBy Math -- a series of six standards-based distance-rate-time investigations in air traffic control. Sixth-grade students—acting as pilots, air traffic controllers, and NASA scientists—conduct an experiment and then use multiple mathematical representations to analyze and solve a problem involving two planes flying on intersecting routes. Includes links to online videos, questions and problems for students, and examples of student work.
