One of our Honors Geometry students’ summer lessons included the tools of geometry. Since this summer marked the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11’s first moon landing, we chose to celebrate the national milestone with one of our early projects. Students used rulers and protractors to create their own rocket designs. Side measures were given to the nearest sixteenth of an inch and the angle measures were given to the nearest half degree. The students were asked to use rectangles, squares, trapezoids, right triangles, isosceles triangles, and equilateral triangles in the sketch.
