AA similarity could be used in this project because to have congruent triangles they must have two pairs of the same angles.
Where the two pairs of angles are located?
- The two pairs of angles are located at the base of the flag pole, and the person forming a 90 degree angle. The second angle is located at either side of the mirror.
Why does the mirror provide congruent angle pairs?
- The mirror provide congruent angle pairs because the angle that the light goes into the mirror is the same angle that comes off of the mirror, thus creating two congruent angles.

The pencil/ person technique is used to estimate the height of an object using relative objects that you already know the height of.
