This is a Mathematics/Geometry resource that enables students to practise various methods to find the height of a tree.
This is a Mathematics/Geometry resource that enables students to practise various methods to find the height of a tree. They will practise their skills of estimation, measuring and basic trigonometry (right angled triangles), as well as having to work together in pairs or teams.
The skills required for the tasks should be introduced and taught before the visit to Goodleaf Tree Climbing, to ensure students are able to engage themselves with the methods described in the resource worksheet. They would benefit from making the “ratio card” and “inclinometer” before their visit, so these are ready for use.
Key Skills Practised
Working with others to solve problems
The skills should be taught and practised in class prior to the trip so students are aware of the techniques and skills they need to utilise.
