Maben, Jerrold William
Space science-oriented concepts and suggested activities are presented for intermediate grade teachers of science and mathematics in a book designed to help bring applications of space-oriented mathematics into the classroom. Concepts and activities are considered in these areas: methods of keeping time (historically); measurement as related to time, distance, and astronomy, including lunar photographs and measurement activities; communication in space, sound, and satellites; measuring the atmosphere; and measuring and interpreting the light from stars.
