Space Math III -- Problem 9, Monster Functions in Space Science I

First page of Problem 9, Monster Functions in Space Science I

Product Type: Lesson Plan/Activity
Audience: Educators

Grade Levels: 9-12
Publication Year: 2013
Subjects: Mathematics


This problem has students use a pair of complicated algebraic equations to evaluate the strength of the sun's magnetic field near Earth's orbit. The equations are a model of the sun's magnetic field in space based on actual research by a solar physicist. With the provided values for variables, students use substitution to calculate the values for two vector components of the sun's magnetic field near Earth's orbit. A one-page teacher guide accompanies the one-page assignment.
