How Rockets Fly Student's Edition: Math & Science Learning Standards Applied to Rocket Design Grades 4-6 (Paperback)
How Rockets Fly, Student's Edition, illustrates through rocket design how technical books are written, and how mathematical expressions come to be, with a systematic seven step approach to problem solving. How Rockets Fly is a series of colorfully illustrated interactive labs intended for grades 4-6 aimed at helping children learn and apply problem solving techniques for math and science in a way that is both powerful and fun for children. How Rockets Fly illustrates through rocket design how technical books are written, and how mathematical expressions come to be. How Rockets Fly incorporates many of the Learning Standards taught for proficiency testing and applies these standards to rocket design with a systematic approach to problem solving. Upon completion of the labs, the students will predict the stability of a rocket and certify it for flight. Then they will test their theoretical skills with empirical data as they watch their own rockets fly Many of the Math and Science Learning Standards taught for proficiency testing can be found in How Rockets Fly and applied to rocket design, flight, and descent. The Student's Edition is a companion book to the Teacher's Edition and includes an appendix including: Rocket Cutout Templates, and additional graph paper.
