an explanation from a NASA Web-based textbook, you will demonstrate an
understanding of the text by labeling and describing the functions of
the parts of an airplane.
Beginner's Guide to
Aerodynamics is a "textbook" of information prepared at NASA Glenn Research
Center to help you better understand how airplanes work. Click
Guide Index to access the list of slides. Open the slide called
Airplane Parts Definitions
(with text) and read the explanation of the parts of an airplane and
their functions. For more information on airplane parts and their functions
refer to the following slides:
Flaps and Slats,
Rudder (with text).
Then using the information provided at Airplane
Parts Activity, complete the problems designed to demonstrate your
knowledge of basic airplane parts and their functions.
or you and your partner(s), will be evaluated on the accuracy or feasibility
of your answers.
- You will demonstrate
the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web to learn
how to label and describe the functions of the parts of an airplane.
