I Can Determine The Height Of A Rocket! by Carolyn Hicks 2003

1 st Step Determine the tools needed. Plan a visit to the rocket to take measurements. Review trigonometric ratio problem solving. Prepare

2 nd Step On the field trip, take measurements of: Take Field Trip 2.Angle formed by this distance and an imaginary line from this point to the top of the rocket (<A). 1. Distance between some point and the base of the rocket (b)

3 rd Step Use data to calculate the height. Calculate the height. tan A = height of rocket (a)/ distance (b) or tan A = a/b or a = b (tan A)

4th Step Using internet Convert the results to metric units. convert the height to metric units. http://www.onlineconversion.comhttp://www.onlineconversion.com,
