Guide to Propulsion
as Inquiry - Abilities necessary to do scientific inquiry.
Science - Motions and forces.
Science - Transfer of energy.
Technology - Understandings about Science and Technology.
as Reasoning - Recognize and apply deductive and inductive reasoning.
Connections - Apply mathematical thinking and modeling to solve
problems that arise in other disciplines.
- Estimate, make, and use measurements to describe and compare phenomena.
Tools - Use content-specific tools, software and simulations (e.g.,
environmental probes, graphing calculators, exploratory environments,
Web tools) to support learning and research.
Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Tools - Routinely and efficiently
use on-line information resources to meet needs for collaboration,
research, publications, communications, and productivity.

of the text by completing a propulsion activity, charting the results,
and answering questions that demonstrate an understanding of rocket
The Beginner's Guide
to Propulsion is a Web site of information prepared by NASA Glenn Research
Center to help you better understand aircraft propulsion. Click Beginner's
Guide Index to access the
list of slides. Open the slide called Rocket
Propulsion and read it, then proceed to the activity
you and your partner(s), will be evaluated on the feasibility of your

World Wide Web by completing the activity and charting your results.
You should also show an understanding of the relationship between mass
and the distance traveled given the propulsion from a film can rocket.
