Description

In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students extend their knowledge of proportions to solving problems dealing with similarity by measuring the heights and shadows of familiar objects and using indirect measurement to find the heights of things that are much bigger in size, such as a flagpole, school building, and tree.
