The history of aerodynamics is rich with experimentation and international collaboration. Author Joyce Bryant relays this dynamic past and provides math word problems using the formula of lift, the force that makes airplanes fly. She suggests; to fly a kite, release a toy balloon, or place strips of paper in a fan to provide tangible demonstrations of the force of air molecules in understanding lift. Diagrams are not included.

Lesson Planet has helped me a lot with my previous grade levels from K-6. Now I am reinstating my membership because I know it can help me more with my middle school special education classes.
