Mrs. Hanks’ Pre-Calculus Students Participated in a NASA Webinar

Mrs. Hanks’ Pre-Calculus students recently studied ellipses, using mathematical equations to determine how long it would take a spacecraft to travel on its elliptical path from Earth to Mars. The lesson coincided with the landing of NASA’s InSight rover on Mars. As part of that event, NASA Langley hosted a webinar for K-12 students, which Mrs. Hanks’ students were able to “attend”. They also participated in a Q&A session, during which their question, about how ellipses and hyperbolas are related to space flight, was answered by NASA STEM experts.

Did you know that seat belts reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by 50%? Seat belt use saves almost 15,000 lives each year!  Air bags provide added protection, but are not a substitute for seat belts. Do not unbuckle while the car is in motion, no matter how close your destination. Remember, “Click It or Ticket, It’s the Law”. Throughout the year we, at Lafayette, will periodically check to see if you are wearing your seat belt. Student drivers – if anyone in your vehicle is found to be unbuckled, you will lose your parking pass, and your parents will be notified. Again, “Click It or Ticket, it’s the Law”.
