- Program Description
How do people determine lengths when they can't use standard measuring tools, such as a tape measure? How do they find the distance across a river if, for example, they don't have a boat? Measurements of very large objects or of long distances are often made indirectly, using similar triangles and proportions. Such indirect methods link measurement with geometry and number.
