The Boat Project combines everything the students have learned this semester in regular Geometry into one project. Every group that participates in the races has successfully completed Phases 1 through 7.  This project incorporates Similarity, Pythagorean Theorem, Right Triangle Trigonometry, Area, and Volume.


The winners of the 2nd annual Boat Races were Maggie Dygola and Kaitlyn Homa from Ms. Taxakis’ 4th period class. Their time across the pool was 23 seconds.
