Proportion projects



The state legislature decided that objects on all school campus must be between nine and 100 feet tall. Geometry students in Cheryl Swiech classes at Rockdale High school have been chosen to make sure RISD is in compliance.

Here a group of students use length of their shadows to compare with those of the parking lot light poles.
