The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

In this webinar we will learn about how scientists use math to learn about distant planets. Using Kepler's laws, algebra, and geometry, we can gather a plethora of information on planet size, speed and movement in our search for planets similar to our own! The activity will cover math standards pertaining to radicals, linear and exponential models and well as NGSS space science standards.
