From Here, Where? A Space Mathematics Supplement for Secondary Levels.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Washington, DC.
A number of space science resource materials and activities are developed into a useful format for classroom presentation. The application of mathematical properties in making scientific discoveries is the major emphasis. Each section has a discussion centered on the men and history behind the discovery of physical laws and phenomena relevant to space flight and exploration. The discussion provides interest and stimulation for the suggested experiments and problems. This document provides a valuable supplement for use with secondary school topics such as ratios, logarithms, vectors, analytic geometry and trigonometry. (JP)
