Launch a Rocket Into Space: You do the Maths

Publisher: QED Publishing

Michael the astronaut shows you how maths can help you blast off into space.

How are rockets made? How are astronauts chosen? What do they eat and how do they live in space?

Soon it's time for the launch, controlling the rocket and orbiting the Earth. Finally, you re-enter the atmosphere and return home. Your space mission is complete.

You will need to use addition and subtraction, interpret tables, measure and compare angles and read dials and scales. You'll need to understand negative numbers and make comparisons too.

Maths is made appealing by relating it to its use in the modern world and by the use of comic book style illustrations. With answers and glossary.
