This is an 18-question worksheet based on the calculations done by fictional Mars astronaut Mark Watney in the book 'The Martian' by Andy Weir. It involves calculating food rations, soil volume, and converting units. I am also including an answer key, conversion factor chart, and book page reference. The assignment is titled "You Are The Martian". It is a Word Doc so you can edit it as needed.
Skills students need to know:
Dimensional Analysis/Unit conversion
Speed = distance/time
