SPECIFIC MATHEMATICS STANDARDS ADDRESSED IN DEEP IMPACT MISSION CHALLENGE from Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM)
Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three- dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships.
- Grades 9-12 - Use trigonometric relationships to determine lengths and angle measures
Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems
- Grades 9-12 - Use Cartesian coordinates and other coordinate systems, such as navigational, polar, or spherical systems, to analyze geometric situations
Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems
- Grades 9-12 - Use geometric ideas to solve problems in, and gain insights into, other disciplines and other areas of interest such as art and architecture
