The average height of the foul pole for this project was 13.17 feet tall. To find the height of the foul pole, each member of the group counted the distance from the foul pole at 10 ⁰, 30 ⁰, 45 ⁰, and 60 ⁰. We then used trigonometry and special right triangles. We used the distance from the base as one of the legs. For the special right triangles, we used a clinometer to measure the degrees. One lesson I learned from this project is that the shorter the distance from the base, the greater the angle degree is.
