Math by the Month
math by the month: Take flight with mathematics

Kimberly M. Lilienthal 

May 2013, Volume 19, Issue 9, Page 546

Abstract:
Exploring airport traffic, usage, hours of operation, and security statistics are all ways to model and bring relevance to math. Students soar while exploring the mathematics of aircraft: dimensions, cargo, fuel, and passenger capacity. Comparing two airports or aircraft would be valuable ways to extend their mathematical journey.
