PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students will use surface area, volume and even percents as this math story asks them to design a capsule to land on Mars. The capsule must maximize volume while minimizing surface area, all while staying within a budget. This math story includes a video launch, to "hook" your students. Rather than a traditional story problem or project, all information comes to students in the form of the video introduction, and "memos" from NASA about project details. As students work, there is even an extra memo you can give to students about a discount that NASA secured from one of the vendors.

In addition to the materials to complete the math story, this resource also contains a sample solution, a surface area and volume worksheet, and exit ticket.

If you enjoy this math story, you might also like my Math Story: Slope. Forget about boring story problems....try a Math Story, and really grab your students' attention!.
