The sixth graders did a little hands on learning to determine the height or altitude of acute and obtuse triangles. Aubrey is representing the height of the triangle because her head is acting as the vertex that is opposite from the base of the triangle. Her body is the perpendicular distance from that vertex to the base of the triangle. Aubrey’s height is the height of the triangle! Great job sixth grade!
