Estimating Slope Take One

In this silent video I show how a group of Ag and math students estimate slope in order to calculate how erodible the newly planted field will be.   I just wanted the video up fast.  I will spend some more time later refining it and adding some other explanations.

A major question I had as a math teacher, after hearing this is how the Ag class estimates slope at a range management competition.

How is it possible to use the hypotenuse to calculate a fairly accurate estimate?

  1. I shut the audio off. On the next video I will add in audio and clean it up. The wind was blowing so hard when we were taping that all you hear is wind howling.
