Our Solar System - Comparing Planetary Travel Distances

NASA presents a mini-unit on distances in our solar system. It incorporates scientific concepts of gravity, mass, density, and payload while your aspiring astronauts also employ mathematics skills. They calculate speed, they determine ratios and proportions, and they compare fractions, decimals, and percentages. This is a terrific way to apply math to real-life situations. Put it to use in your middle school math or space science curriculum.
