Kiteboarding Math and Science

We explored the following:

CEO:Median Employee Salary Pay Ratios

This lesson is based on an article called Rewarding or Hoarding: An Examination of Pay Ratios CEO:Median Employee Salary. This ratio (“Pay Gap Ratio”), as of 2018, is now required to be tracked by all US public companies. 

Tallest Buildings in the World--Now, Design Your Own Mile High+ Tower

Last week, we used mathematics and engineering techniques to build the tallest tower out of index cards. The results were stagering: over 90% of Mathletes participated and built towers up to 103" in height.

 

Index Card Tower CHALLENGE

After teaching the Mathletes how to measure the height of tall objects, or any object for that matter, including trees, buildings, etc., I wanted to challenge them to engineer their own tall structures.

Clinometer: Finding the height of objects using Isosceles Right Triangles

A clinometer, also called a declinometer or an inclinometer, is an instrument that measures vertical slope, usually the angle between the ground or the observer and a tall object.
