Storyboard Text

  • Hi Alyssa, I'm going to the Eiffel Tower today. Would you like to join?   
  • Sure, I'll come but wait! Do you know the height of it in feet is?
  • Well students, if you would like to figure out how tall the Eiffel tower is you would have to use trigonometry 
  • Gee thanks!
  • He's right! Let's start solving this now
  • Lets think of it as the right triangle where the side is the tower height and you are standing 
  • okay, what next?
  • Click to Edit Title
  • Imagine a person standing 531 ft away from the tower. He looks up at an angle of 63.46 degrees to the tip.
  • hm okay
  • Click to Edit Title
  • To solve this, you would use SOHCAHTOA by doing tan63.46 x 531 to get the height
  • what did you get for height?
  • Click to Edit Title
  • The height is 1063 ft from the ground to the very tip.
  • I got the same answer with my calculator!
