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...

Space Weather Math

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at space weather. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in mathematics and physical science from age 11 to 19 years.

The problems were created to be authentic glimpses of modern...

Programming

This activity introduces students to space and planetary science whilst teaching skills that engineers and scientists use to analyse data from other planets. Students are given a detailed introduction to the programme ‘Python’ through the resources and are taught about the needed set up, spectral algebra and...

Black Hole Mathematics

This series of activities from NASA take a mathematical approach to looking at black holes. They are intended as supplementary problems for students looking for additional challenges in the maths and physical science post-16 curriculum. Problems consist of a student page and an answer sheet. Students need to be...

Planetary Scientist

Sheila Kanani is a PhD student at University College London (UCL), and analyses data from a spacecraft currently orbiting Saturn. This Department for Education clip gives students insight into the world of space science.

Sheila describes how her involvement in space science has taken her to Russia, to see...

Rocket Game

This space themed maths game provides an opportunity for children to practice working with number bonds to 10. It can be played either as a board game in pairs or used within an interactive whiteboard page.

To play the game the 10 number cards are shuffled and placed face-down near the board. Players take it...
