- Junior vs. Senior Trig Field DayBy JerMiyah Carter
- Coach Moore was drawing out the triangle field for the one-legged race. He knew that the distance between the starting point and the midpoint of the furthest line was 240 feet. He also knew that the distance between the two other points was 60 feet. Coach Moore wanted the distance between the starting point and the other two points to be equal. Using the Pythagorean Theorem, he figured out that 240^2 + 60^2 =61200 . He also found out the square root of 61200 is 247.4 feet rounded to the nearest tenth.

- Jon threw the javelin. Coach Moore told Don that he threw the javelin at a 35-degree angle. When the javelin reached its highest height, Coach Moore said that it traveled 60 feet horizontally. Using trigonometry, he deduced that tan35 x 60 = 42 feet rounded to the nearest whole number. Coach Moore told Jon that, when the javelin reached its highest point in the sky, it was about 42 feet high.

- Miyah stood 30 feet away from the high bar. She saw that the bar was 13 feet high and knew that she was 5.5 feet tall. Using trigonometry again, Miyah concluded that tan^-1 (7.5/30) = 14 degrees rounded to the nearest whole number. Therefore, the angle of elevation between her line of sight and the 30 feet distance to the bar was around 14 degrees. Click To EditDon stood 30 feet away from the Pole Vault pit. He saw that the bar is 13 feet high and knew that he was 5.5 feet tall. Using trigonometry again, Don concluded that tan^-1 (7.5/30) = 14 degrees rounded to the nearest whole number. Therefore, the angle of elevation between his line of sight and the 30 feet distance was around 14 degrees.

- Jon stood 12 feet away from the base of the High Jump pit. Coach Moore said to him that he was standing at a 30-degree angle from the top pole. Using trigonometry once more, Jon found out that 12/cos30 = 14 feet rounded to the nearest whole number. Jon deduced that, from where he was standing, he was nearly 14 feet away from the top pole.
