With You When You Fly: Aeronautics for Introductory Physics
Aeronautics for Introductory Physics is a collection of inquiry-based interactive demonstrations, labs, and data/literary analysis activities appropriate for high school and introductory college level science students. The document is a result of a Space Act Agreement between NASA and the American Association of Physics Teachers. Over 26 lesson ideas associated with aeronautics were synthesized and developed from peer-reviewed, teacher-contributed articles in The Physics Teacher magazine, and combined with connections to NASA Aeronautics education resources and current research. These activities were developed to teach fundamental physics concepts and inquiry skills in such as ay that they could be embedded into a standard physics course. The activities support both the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core Standards for Reading and in Science.
