NASA Learning Objects: PLANE MATH

"This NASA video segment briefly explores how the development of the Hyper-X experimental airplane will impact the future of flight. Viewers learn that if commercial airlines incorporate Hyper-X technology into their aircraft, people will be able to travel across the United States in about 30 minutes. The remainder of the segment explores the Plane Math interactive Web site. The Plane Math site has eight training departments with information about aeronautical principles. Besides many interactive learning tools, Plane Math includes geometry- and algebra-related concepts. Students simulate designing an aircraft for a client and testing the design in a virtual wind tunnel. "
