 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.
