Matrix of Math Standards and Aeronautics Topics
5th Grade Activities: Pioneer Plane

Each of the lessons included in PlaneMath represent five or more of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Math Standards, as well as two or more general aeronautics topics. To help you plan your use of PlaneMath to teach or reinforce specific concepts, we have included the following matrices indicating the math standards and aeronautics topics that correspond to each lesson. To view the matrices for the 4th or the 6th-7th grade activities, please click here to return to the main NCTM matrix page.

Note to users of this Text Only page: The links below go to the text-only scripts of each lesson. However, in Pioneer Plane, the interactive portions of each lesson are in Shockwave format, which cannot be transcribed into text-only formats.
