Three computer programs are presented that allow the high school student to explore and understand the physical forces involved in orbital flight at a greater depth than is usually possible. For each program, introductory material is given including the physics and mathematics involved. This is followed by the computer program in BASIC language. The mathematics involved is essentially that of an advanced algebra II course. The three program topics are elliptic orbits, rendezvous, and orbital transfer. (MP)
