How tall is the school?

June 2, 2017

We used clinometers to determine the angle of elevation and calculate the height of the school.

Some of us used a level app instead.

Everyone needed to measure the distance to the  school as well.
We also used shadows and similar triangles to determine the height of people and other tall items .  We compared the shadow length of a meter stick to our shadows.
