the hight of a tree


another from ropp's... how to gage the "hight" of a tree.

considering most of the people i know with MFAs couldn't figure out much of the simple tasks in this book in terms of equations, i'm thinking folks understood math a lot better then than most of us do now.

the "hight" of a tree, is one of a number of little beautiful images and activities. you'll have to click on it to be able to read it; but i love the idea of someone laying down a pole next to a tree and then laying down oneself to get one's eye in line with the top of the pole and the tree, rather than getting a ladder and some trained birds and monkeys and a really long tape measure.
