Ladder figuring


ladder1 

 Brian can't even go to his town's spring festival without seeing math. Let your class approximate the height or length of this ladder by using the relative size of the cars or the people to approximate the ladder's length.  Make a guess that is too large and a guess that is to small.  Average guesses or compare guesses.

Compare your guesses with the real measurement. Is math fun or what? The solution for this is available to everyone. See the ladder solution picture.
