This series of 15 problems provides real-life applications of mathematics in the study of the sun and Earth as a system. Through mathematics and reading activities, students learn how to search for trends and correlations in data; extract the average, maximum and minimum from data; use scientific notation to work with very large and very small numbers; use a scale drawing to estimate the size of an aurora; use the Pythagorean theorem to calculate magnetic field strength; and use simple equations to convert raw data into physical quantities.
