        Scale City | Inverse Proportions and Shadows in the Real World

        In this video, students take a quick trip through the history of drive-in theaters and are then asked to consider the question, "What is the relationship between the size of an object’s shadow and the object’s distance from a light source?" In the accompanying classroom activity, students do a hands-on experiment about the size of their own shadows at different distances from a projector or other light source. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
