NASA Earth and Space Science Reviewed Collection

The NASA Earth and Space Science Reviewed Collection provides educators and students with a direct line of access to quality products reviewed through the NASA product review. The resources have been rigorously reviewed by an independent peer review of teachers, curriculum and design specialists, teacher trainers, and scientists. The review of the learning resources is based on their scientific accuracy, educational value, documentation, ease of use, their power to engage or motivate students, their robustness/sustainability as a digital resource, and ability to foster mastery of significant understandings or skills. Resources in the collection support the NASA Science Mission Directorate: Earth Science education missions.

Space Math: Radiation Math
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This booklet includes 19 problems that explore the topic of radiation and human exposure to its different forms. The problems span math abilities from basic multiplication and unit conversions, to algebra and calculus. For example, students learn about the various natural radiation dosages to which they are exposed daily, work quantitatively with authentic radiation dosage units to estimate the total annual dosages resulting from different lifestyles, and determine probabilities of occurrence for flares and other radiation events in space. Math skills include graph analysis, Venn diagramming, probability and statistics, evaluating equations in more than one variable, extrapolation and forecasting, scientific notation, integral calculus.

This is a revised "Tracking a Solar Storm-Student Observation Network" with a new format and Web site. The Space Weather Action Center (SWAC) allows students to use near real time data and track a solar storm. By following the basic steps in the Instructional Guide students can access, analyze and record NASA satellite and observatory data. There is a downloadable 'step-by-step' Educator's Setup Guide where you will find a variety of recommendations and diagrams detailing how to construct a fully functional SWAC while keeping potential limitations on space and technology in mind. Flip charts provide the step by step data use and there are also instructions for using green screen technology.
