Students explore the way in which the sun interacts with Earth to produce space weather and the ways in which astronomers study solar storms to predict when adverse conditions may pose a hazard for satellites and human operation in space. Space Weather Math supplements the Space Weather Action Center site as students track a solar storm from the sun until it impacts our Earth’s magnetosphere. The variety of concepts in this 96-problem collection includes concepts such as sunspot cycles, solar flares, coronal mass ejections, graph analysis, unit conversions, linear equations and probability. Each word problem includes background information. The one-page assignments are accompanied by one-page teachers answer keys.
