To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The math is not difficult. In fact, when designing either circuits or rockets college algebra is usually sufficient. Engineers today can use Mathcad for plots, and for sensitivity analysis. No more slide rules.
Good presentation. Cleanly printed, great High School level intro to outer space mathematics.
Includes intro to binary numbers, translation from units of distance (feet, meters, miles, AUs, light years, par secs), star brightness, distance , geometry, statistics, fuel, . .
May be a few more subjects too, not much here for orbital, nor material science, but some of the subjects are bright and pretty in the text. Great intro and something for person's appetite in outer space mathematics.
This is a great resource for High School science and math teachers. Problems with solutions are provided that show how the mathematics their students are currently learning find real world applications in space science and technology. Compiled by NASA personnel, these problems will both serve to instruct and to get students excited about space science and technology. There is a wide range of difficulty, from simple computations to fairly involved derivations.
Cool book for an aspiring astronautical engineer. Most of the math is over my head at this point but it gave me some inspiration in my math courses because it has examples of a lot of the concepts that we are learning, but in a context that is less abstract than is covered in school. Basically it showed me why I care to learn the math by explaining how it is applied to astronautical problems. Cool book to have.
Wonderful collection of problems and examples, suitable for students from high school through early undergraduate. I've reworked several of the FORTRAN programs into Python to use with a Computational Physics class...
