Young scholars research how engineers and scientists generate linear and angular measurements with geometry to survey the Earth and Mars. They assess how geometric shapes affect navigation. A surveyor comes to the classroom and explains how he surveys locations to describe the techniques he uses to show how geometry and math are used in surveying.
Students explore the definition of matter.  In exploring matter lesson plan students get into groups and navigate the Internet to answer questions. 
In this polygons lesson, students explore TI-Navigator software by creating polygons. The teacher leads students through three problems that direct them to create, manipulate, and take measurements of three polygons.  Step by step instructions include exactly what buttons to push and screen images of the software are provided. One of the tools in the software makes student answers available for assessment as well.
Sixth graders navigate an online atlas of Canada and compare the land area of of historical Aboriginal peoples in Manitoba to present-day figures.
Students investigate the role of lighthouses in navigation and practice the use of cardinal directions through reading activities, discussion, locating geographical features, and mapping lighthouses along the east coast of the United States.
Learners compare and contrast two species' characteristics. They then complete a Venn Diagram and practice web browser navigation skills, including moving from one window to another.
Learners identify and read correctly the symbols of a Spanish train schedule. Using maps, they identify and locate major cities and landforms of Spain and practice using a twenty-four hour clock. Using the internet, they navigate a site in Spanish.
Students design a web page complete with text, graphics, and hypertext links. After adding backgrounds, navigation buttons, and audio-visual effects, students revise their work based on comments from peers and teachers. Student websites are published on the Internet after final revision.
Students examine how Christopher Columbus made his way across the Atlantic.  In this data lesson students use an Internet program to navigate like Columbus. 
Pupils explain three ways in which marine navigation is important to society. They discuss the importance of having access to up to date data. They use the nowCOAST tool to gather information on tides and weather forecasts for specific areas.
Students examine state practice test exams questions.  In this secondary mathematics exam, students receive instructions for downloading state practice exams, using the test item banks with the TI-Navigator system, and view sample exam questions. 
Middle schoolers discover the use of math in navigation and engineering. They practice solving equations and discover how triangles can help them determine distances. They discover the importance of math to engineers.
Students study the use of a nautical chart and how to obtain information from it. They describe and differentiate the basic topographic characteristics of a chart and demonstrate the use of nautical tools used to plot fixed points on a navigational chart.
Middle schoolers practice using a global positioning system. They discuss the use of celestial objects as navigation points and its problems. They list the advantages and disadvantages of GPS as well.
Students study a research telescope to obtain quantitative information about these objects. They use the SkyServer Navigation Tool to identify objects and record celestial coordinates. In addition, they associate star brightness and magnitude with relative magnitude when observed through different filters.
Students create a slide presentation that contains text, images, sounds, and navigation buttons. They explore PowerPoint and use the different tools and basic slide-creation options.
Students identify differences in information found on the internet and in print books. They practice navigating between different pages and using shortcuts. They evaluate a site and share their findings with the class.
Students make a grid and coordinate system map of their classroom as they investigate why it is important to have a common map making system. They look at how landmarks are used for navigating an area.
Students explore comets by navigating the Internet and viewing a slideshow. They participate in illustrating and labeling the parts of a comet. They create a model of comet and describe how a comet travels.
Can you fathom a fathom? Through this activity, learners get a grasp of how deep a fathom is and how the floor of The Great Lakes might look. They compare topographic maps to Great Lakes navigation charts, which you will need to obtain in order to completely carry out this lesson. This lesson would be valuable as your class studies landforms and ocean bottom features, or if you are focusing on The Great Lakes.
