Educators in Grades 6-10

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

In this free workshop, a NASA/JPL education specialist will introduce educators to our popular Pi in the Sky math problem set. These illustrated math problems give students a chance to apply the mathematical constant pi to some of the real calculations space explorers use every day. The problem set can be used as a handout or poster to show students, and especially visual learners, all kinds of stellar applications of the math they're learning in school. This activity meets Next Generation Science and Common Core Math standards.
