Hinode is an international mission to study the sun. By studying the sun’s magnetic field, scientists hope to learn if they can identify the magnetic field configurations that lead to explosive energy releases and then to predict when these events may occur. The variety of problems includes proportions, decimals, geometry and scientific notation. The problems call for students to apply mathematics and science concepts to understand the sun and the work of the Hinode satellite. Each word problem has background information providing insight into the sun and Hinode. The one-page assignments are accompanied by one-page answer keys.
