**CHALLENGE #1: MASS & ENERGY**

**SPECIFIC STANDARDS ADDRESSED IN DEEP IMPACT MISSION CHALLENGE
from ***Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM)*

**Algebra**

*Represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures using algebraic symbols*

- Grades 6-8 - Use symbolic algebra to represent situations and to solve problems, especially those that involve linear
relationships
- Grades 9-12 - Use symbolic algebra to represent and explain mathematical relationships

**Measurement**

*Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements*

- Grades 6-8 - Solve simple problems involving rates and derived measurements for such attributes as velocity and
density

**SPECIFIC SCIENCE STANDARDS ADDRESSED IN DEEP IMPACT MISSION CHALLENGE
from ***National Science Education Standards*

**Physical Science**

*Motions and Forces*

- Grades 9-12 - All energy can be considered to be either kinetic energy, which is the energy of motion; potential
energy, which depends on relative position; or energy contained by a field, such as electromagnetic waves.
