This TI-89 program calculates basic geometric parameters and dimensions of a given regular square pyramid. Functions of this program include: Ratios between the base, the height, the slant height, the edge and the diagonal of the pyramid. These attributes are evident from the values of trigonometric functions of the angles. In the Cheops’ pyramid you can find more than 25 ratios including the golden mean ratio Phi.
