This collection of lesson plans and other materials are rather dated, as they were designed to align to a NASA mission from 2005 and have not been updated post-mission.  They also do not reflect the latest math and science standards currently in use.

The science lesson plans would serve as a useful model for prospective science teachers; they are well-thought out and include a lot of resources for teachers such as peer evaluation, rubrics, and student handouts.  The math section of this collection, though, is merely a set of challenge problems; although there is an attempt to align them to the math standards, there is no information about how to use them in the classroom or any lesson plans to go along with them.  These challenge problems suffer, too, from over-explanation; they give step-by-step instructions and do not leave much room for student research or experimentation.
