The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute has a number of self-contained classroom resources based on topical issues and current events. For each there is a brief background and some mathematical questions for students.
SpaceMath@NASA has created a number of individual math problems for grades 5-12 that feature Earth science themes. This webpage is the archive of these problems – each is given by its title, content, grade level and math skill, and consists of a single Student page and a teacher Answer key in a compact PDF file.

With 103 problems designed for middle and high school students, this book covers many topics in remote sensing, satellite imaging, image analysis and interpretation. Examples are culled from NASA earth science and astronomy missions. Students learn about instrument resolution and sensitivity as well as how to calibrate a common digital camera, and how to design a satellite imaging system.
