The Shapes of Tomorrow.
Vermont Univ., Burlington.
This book, written by classroom teachers, introduces the application of secondary school mathematics to space exploration, and is intended to unify science and mathematics. In early chapters geometric concepts are used with general concepts of space and rough approximations of space measurements. Later, these concepts are refined to include the use of coordinates and measurements in space exploration. The first three chapters may be used as supplementary material to challenge students with space applications, as well as resource materials for the teachers. Chapters 4 and 5 provide basic concepts of science and mathematics needed to understand space travel. These concepts may supplement regular science computers in treating meaningful problems. (RR)
