Why Are Castles So Tall?

In this module students explore indirect measurement by seeing how simple angle measure, height measurements, and tangent ratios can be used to calculate distances. The context of castles provides a historically relevant military purpose for the tallness of castles.

This module explores Himeji Castle in Japan, as well as other castles. Some of the concepts explored in this module include:

  • Angle measurements and alternate interior angles of parallel lines
  • Tangent ratios
  • Linear functions, in particular the functional relationship between a castle's height and its line of sight for a given angle

This module provides a nice blend of algebra and geometry topics and can be used in an algebra unit on linear functions, a geometry unit on tangent ratios, or even a pre-calculus lesson on tangent ratios and functions.

Closed Captioned Video: Percents: Applications of Percent -- Grade

Video Tutorial: Applications of Percent -- Grade. In this video we investigate the concept of the grade of a road. This is an application of percents, where the slope of a road or a ski slope is written in percent form. We interpret this percent measurement as a slope measurement.
