This series of activities from NASA are based on a weekly series of space science problems distributed to teachers in the United States, from 2004 to 2010. They were intended for students aged 9 to 19 looking for additional challenges in the mathematics and physical science curriculum. The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of modern science and engineering issues, often involving actual research data. The problems were designed to be ‘one-pagers’ with a teacher’s guide and answer key as a second page. This compact form was deemed very popular by participating teachers. This collection includes the following resources: Space Math I to VI; Black Hole Math; Solar Math; Lunar Math; Image Scale Math; Radiation Math; Magnetic Math; Earth Math; Electromagnetic Math; Space Weather Math; and Transit Math.

Image Scale Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at image scaling, which is an important first step that all astronomers perform when looking at image data. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from...

Radiation Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at radiation, and will make the student familiar with many forms of radiation, how it is measured, and what different doses can lead to over time. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in...
