What’s on Your Radar Screen

NASA Smart Skies offers two sets of real-life activities that apply concepts in mathematics. Geared for grades 5-9, FlyByMath asks students to solve five different problems that will help them act as air traffic controllers, predicting air traffic conflicts. Included for each problem is a teacher guide, student workbook, and an assessment package. In LineUp With Math, the students solve real air traffic control scenarios by using an Air Traffic Control Simulator. This set of activities also includes teachers’ guides and student workbooks. In both sets of activities students are working to solve distance-rate-time problems.
