reSolve: Time: Mission Control to ISS
This sequence of two lessons explores reading and interpreting timetables. Students are challenged to construct a daily schedule for three astronauts on the International Space Station given a series of activities and duties undertaken. They are then presented with a scenario and order the events, and add and subtract times with the use of a timeline. The sequence is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, presentation slides, discussion points and student resources. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry program.
