# Geometry of Flight

This collection is a short geometry lesson supplement themed with various aspects of flight to provide real world examples; it contains pictures, videos, and practice problems (as well as links to further practice problems). It includes volume and surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms, basic Pythagorean theorem and trigonometry, and the volume and surface area of cones, cylinders, and pyramids.

Goal: Students will better understand how to find the volume and surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms, basic Pythagorean theorem and trigonometry, and how to find the the volume and surface area of cones, cylinders, and pyramids.

Tags: Flight, space, aeronautic, geometry, volume, surface area, rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, prism, cylinder, cone, pyramid, Pythagorean theorem, right triangles, trigonometry, sin, cos, tan
