Guide to Aerodynamics
Airplane Parts Identification & Functions Problem Set
- Unifying Concepts
and Processes: Models and explanation.
- Science and
Technology: Understandings about science and technology.
- Research Tools
- Use content-specific tools, software and simulations (e.g., environmental
probes, graphing calculators, exploratory environments, Web tools) to
support learning and research.
and Decision-Making Tools - Routinely and efficiently use on-line
information resources to meet needs for collaboration, research, publications,
communications, and productivity.
- After reading a
page from a NASA Web-based textbook, you will demonstrate an understanding
of the text by identifying the airplane parts on the photograph of an
airplane and by answering questions about the functions of selected
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 Beginner's
Guide Index to access the list of slides. Open the slide called Airplane
Parts Definitions (with text). Study the labeled diagram and read
the explanation of the functions of the airplane parts. Then using the
information shown at Airplane Parts Identification
and Functions Problems, complete the questions.

demonstrate the ability to use information found on the World Wide Web
to identify the parts of an airplane and their functions.
