Field trip

November 7, 2014

We went for a walk and measured the rise and run of several staircases on Queen’s campus.

The steps up to the Bruce Wing of Miller hall have a shallow slope.


And next door at Jackson hall, the slope is steeper.



The slope shows the relationship between the vertical change and horizontal change.

What’s the slope of your stairs at home?
