AA Similarity

When doing this project AA similarity can be seen and used. Two angles are shown in this project and the sketch above. One is the right angles at the bottom of the flagpole and the other at the bottom of the persons feet. The other angle seen is the vertical angles at the mirror. By using the mirror it reflect the image to it replicates angles which makes them congruent.

Pencil Person Method

Pencil Person method is when you get someone, (usually 5' or 6) and they represent one foot. You back up quite a lot, and lift up your pencil to the person standing by the object you're measuring, and see how many time you can put them on the object and that's how many feet the object is.
