TTTT$DFinding the height of the flagpole
1. Use your clinometer to find the angle of elevation when looking to the top of the flagpole. Measure the distance from the flagpole. Include any calculations you used.
Angle of Elevation (degrees) ___________________________________
Distance from the bottom of the flagpole (feet) _____________________
2. Find the height of the flagpole (to the nearest tenth of a foot) using trigonometry. Include a diagram of the problem and all calculations.
3. Return to the classroom. Send your calculated height of the flagpole to the teacher. She will collect the data from the class and send it back to you in List 1. Show work to calculate the mean and median of the data.
Mean = ___________________________
Median = __________________________
4. Actual height of flagpole is __________________________.
Write a few paragraphs answering the following questions. How close was your calculated height to the actual height of the flagpole? How close was the mean and median of the data from the class to the actual height of the flagpole? Is this a good method to find the height of an object that cannot be measured?
