 CHALLENGE #6: FINDING THE DISTANCE FROM DEEP IMPACT SPACECRAFT TO THE MOON SPECIFIC MATHEMATICS STANDARDS ADDRESSED IN DEEP IMPACT MISSION CHALLENGE from Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM) Geometry Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three- dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships. Grades 9-12 - Use trigonometric relationships to determine lengths and angle measures Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems Grades 9-12 - Use Cartesian coordinates and other coordinate systems, such as navigational, polar, or spherical systems, to analyze geometric situations Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems Grades 9-12 - Use geometric ideas to solve problems in, and gain insights into, other disciplines and other areas of interest such as art and architecture < BACK
