    The height of a model rocket can be calculated using the angle of elevation from a know point on the ground. An Estes Altitrack is designed specifically for this. Estes Educator.com offers up various lesson plans that incorporate model rocketry to the classroom. This is one of those lessons related to 3-5 grade mathematics.
