PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Aeronautical Chart Information...for the applied math, science and geography of it..

Why are airport runways numbered the way they are? How are time zones designed? What is the importance of "parallels" and "meridians"—or, "latitude" and "longitude"— in geography?

This is a slideshow for everyone, not just pilot wannabes: It solves the riddle of runway numbers and more.

Give your students a look at aviation, navigation, geography and cartography. They will learn about runway numbers; the difference between “true” north and “magnetic” north; the use of “nautical miles” and “statute miles”; and the effect of wind on an aircraft’s groundspeed. Time zones are described and explained. We even examine one possibility of error in the use of navigational almanacs that could have occurred after Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan crossed the International Date Line during their ill-fated flight.

Whether or not they want to be pilots, dispatchers, aircraft mechanics, air traffic controllers, flight attendants — or passengers — someday, aviation is something that will touch students' lives and they will read about it on a daily basis.

U.S. airlines and foreign airlines serving the U.S. carried 895.5 million passengers in 2015, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. In addition, various kinds of aircraft served business travelers; wildfire fighters; emergency medical teams and patients; disaster response teams; law enforcement officers; and others involved in activities including flight instruction, flight training or simply flying for fun!

These materials include a slideshow in both PowerPoint and PDF formats; a 12-question quiz (with answer key) and a one-page sectional chart excerpt. The math involved in the quiz is simple, and the navigational problem can be worked out using the chart excerpt and a straight edge.

I hope you and your students enjoy this topic. Have fun with it!
