Geometry of Exploration: Eyes Over Mars

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.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
