Internet lessons, projects, and activities that can be used to relate mathematics to these Aeronautics career path areas:
 Aeronautics Engineering/Ghosts - Harry Herzer Hot air balloons may be constructed from the thin plastic bags from dry cleaners, sealed at the top, and attached to the open bottom are cross members upon which a number of birthday candles are affixed. Aeronautics Area: Aeronautical Engineering California Mathematics Standard: Problem Solving and Mathematical Reasoning Airport Site Location - NASA Aerospace Education Services Project Airport Construction/Location Factors are reflective of local and extended environments. Students weigh environmental and other socioeconomic factors in their decisions concerning airport site location. Aeronautics Area: Airport Management California Mathematics Standard: Problem Solving and Mathematical Reasoning Bernoulli's Law - Steve Dutczak There are 4 sets of activities in this section (levels K-6 and 7-12). The principle of Bernoulli's Law still remains as the air pressure over the top of the "tongue" causes it to rise. Air pressure flowing on top of a curved airplane's wing causes the airplane to rise. Aeronautics Area: Aeronautics California Mathematics Standard: Problem Solving and Mathematical Reasoning Cross-Country Glider Flight - Bob Hoey This introduction to glider aeronautics was developed as an aid for educators and learners who are interested in aeronautics as demonstrated by the flight of a glider. Aeronautics Area: Commercial Pilot California Mathematics Standard: Problem Solving and Mathematical Reasoning SHAPE (SHaring Aeronautics Projects Electronically) - NASA SHAPE seeks to teach science and math through the use of aeronautics applications on the World Wide Web. This is an index to open-ended curriculum and teacher information organized into sections of atmosphere, weather, force, math, map reading and useful tables.
