Module Summary: AMP-IT-UP - Rescue the Hotshots!
Students simulate a Hotshot Firefighters planning team as they define extraction logistics using the Pythagorean Theorem and the linear equation for distance, rate and time. In the process, they construct a coordinate graph of different Hotshot team positions and determine each teams’ pacing so that all teams meet at the helicopter extraction point at the same time.
