Day 129: Really Tall Things

A week ago I came across Kate Nowak’s awesome post on Trig. I was already into the heat of things, but pulled her activity on finding the height of some really tall things. Geometry had a lot of fun messing around with inclinometer apps. In turn we had some great conversations on real error. Students were getting heights of over 500 meters then 2 meters for the same object.

Next week we are diving into Law of Sines and Cosines, should be fun!
