Teachers continue to look for ways to make math meaningful by
providing students with problems and examples demonstrating its
applications in everyday life. Space Math offers math applications
through one of the strongest motivators-Space. Technology makes it
possible for students to experience the value of math, instead of
just reading about it. Technology is essential to mathematics and
science for such purposes as "access to outer space and other
remote locations, sample collection and treatment, measurement,
data collection and storage, computation, and communication of
information." This book is designed to be used as a supplement for
teaching mathematical topics. The problems can be used to enhance
understanding of the mathematical concept, or as a good assessment
of student mastery. This collection of activities is based on a
weekly series of space science problems distributed to thousands of
teachers during the 2011-2012 school year. They were intended for
students looking for additional challenges in the math and physical
science curriculum in grades 5 through 12. The problems were
created to be authentic glimpses of modern science and engineering
issues, often involving actual research data. The problems were
designed to be 'one-pagers' with a Teacher's Guide and Answer Key
as a second page. This compact form was deemed very popular by
