SPACE MATH WEB SITE – NEW MATH PROBLEMS ONLINE

New math problems (276 – 285) are now online in order to capture some of the excitement of the recent Ares 1-X launch, and discoveries by the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Spitzer Space Telescope and Deep Impact. The Ares 1X problems take students through the simple ballistic problem that describes the path of the payload after apogee, along with some problems about kinetic and potential energy, and exactly how a solid rocket booster ‘burns’ to create its thrust .The last one will certainly dispel a few misconceptions! Check out the problems at http://spacemath.gsfc.nasa.gov/
