NASA Connect - Proportionality - Modeling the Future



NASA Connect Video containing five segments as described below. NASA Connect segment involving students in an online activity that features an Airplane Design Workshop that gives an example how artificial intelligence helps engineers in modeling and designing aircraft. NASA Connect segment involving students in an activity that explores the Fibonacci Sequence. The segment explores ratios, measurements, and proportionalities. NASA Connect segment explaining ratios and proportions. The segment describes how these math concepts helped the Wright Brothers to invent the first flying machine. NASA Connect segment explaining how the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Ratio help NASA engineers research, design and develop airplanes. NASA Connect segment exploring transportation growth since the early 1900s and how the patterns of this growth are mathematical and are related to the Fibonacci sequence.
