How do air traffic controllers apply proportional reasoning to make decisions and resolve conflicts to “line up” airplanes safely, with proper spacing, at a given intersection of routes?
Smart Skies™ Line-up with Math consists of six air traffic control problems. Each examines a different distance-rate-time scenario that an air traffic controller might encounter. Students use a computer-based air traffic control simulator to enact the solution to the problem. This featured lesson engages students in real-life applications of mathematics. Each air traffic control problem features a student workbook, videos and computer-based lessons.
