NASA Space Math(Resource from Pamela Bathelor, JCS IT Coach)
Today, we are exploring a wonderful FREE STEM resource: the Space Math website from NASA
To get started, visit: http://spacemath.gsfc.
You will start at the homepage which looks like this:
This website features math based problems in science and engineering for grade levels 3-12. Problems can be viewed by grade level, subject type, problem books, or in comprehensive STEM Modules.
Let's look at the Problem Books:
By clicking on the books tab, we are taken to the collection of problem books available. These books are grouped by release date and subject area. The books are in PDF format and have lesson ideas as well as teacher answer keys with detailed answers for each problem.
Here is what a sample problem looks like:
A great way to use the problems in PDF format would be to share the problem pages with students using their Google Drive or have the students solve the problems using the SMART Board in your classroom.
From the homepage, you can also view problems by grade level and subject area:
We hope you consider using this free resource of excellent standards based STEM problems and units developed by NASA.
