Pythagorean Theorem: Exploring Space Through Math -- Lunar Rover Web Seminar

NASA Explorer Schools and the Learning Environments and Research Network, or LE&RN, projects are hosting a 60-minute live professional development Web seminar for educators on April 2, 2012, at 8 p.m. EDT. Learn to use the distance formula and the Pythagorean theorem to determine the minimal path and minimal time for a lunar rover to perform tasks on the surface of the moon. Participants should have a basic knowledge of scale factor and application of the Pythagorean theorem. Having access to a calculator is helpful but not necessary for session.
