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.

These materials engage high school students in significant mathematics at an appropriate level; lay a conceptual foundation for understanding mathematical ideas; promote reasoning and problem solving; and show contemporary applications of mathematics using contemporary methodologies. Sample activities include scaling planetary distances; modeling space-debris accumulation, collision probability, and collision effects; investigating exponential growth; determining position in one, two, and three dimensions; and applying global positioning technology to real-life situations. Resource pages for students, selected solutions, and teacher commentary are included.
