Description  A linear graphing lesson using the aircraft SR71 as an “attention getter” and providing a reason to discuss temperature with relation to aerospace. 
Comments  I have found the majority of my students have some interest in space exploration and aerospace. On her main web site: (http://daniel.calpoly.edu/~dfrc/Robin) Robin has many wonderful lesson plans combining aerospace science and mathematics. Many of the lessons can be modified to accommodate any age or skill level.
