Aerodynamic Adventure
In July 1937, Amelia Earhart attempted the first round-the-world flight via the equator with navigator Frederick J. Noonan. Her plane mysteriously disappeared after takeoff from New Guinea.

This webquest begins your aerodynamic adventure to assist Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan in a successful completion of their flight. Your group of investigating aviators must complete a training process to develop skills that will enable you to simulate the flight of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan in 1939. Your skills should help in analyzing what you believe happened to the lofty two. You must enter the navigator training area in Plane Math Activities.

The Home Team
An Internet Activity about Math, Baseball & the San Francisco Giants! created by Linda Uhrenholt, Pacific Bell Education First. Introduction quoted:
"Take me out to the ballgame. Take me out to the crowd...."You can't help humming that tune while on your way to see the San Francisco Giants baseball team! Aunt Rosemary from Ohio is in town and wanted to take you to a Giants game. Unfortunately, the game was starting during your MATH class! However, your parents and math teacher gave you permission to attend the game with special conditions.

The deal is that you will report back to the rest of the math class all the different ways mathematics is used in the game of baseball. This should be a no brainer, or at least you hope!

"Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks, I don't care if I never get back...."
