Mschreiber Benchmark Reflection

1.            There are many ways that this project relates to the real world. For example as time goes on, renevations are done to buildings. These can cause an increase in height or lenth of the building that no one will no about unless if measured. This project helps show how you can measure the height of your buildings with simple means like a mirror and a ruler.  Another way would be when you are helping add additions to a building you can help apply the knowledge from this project to help with the additions to building. This project explains the math used in the world today.


2.            The most exciting part of the project is when we went outside to measure are buildings. Even though it was a bit chilly it was nice to go outside for an assignment. When we were measuring outside time flew by fast and the measurements seemed easier to make outside then when we were doing the mirror method in the cramped hall way. Being able to be on our own outside helping make the measurements for each building is why I think when we went outside to measure was the best part of the project.


3.            Throughout this project I learned many things.  First I learned how to measure a building in a real life scenario with the mirror method. I also learned how to work with a group when I miss a few days of the benchmark work time.  Another thing I learned was how to measure buildings with simple methods such as taking a photo of an object with a known height and using it to measure a height to go. A final thing I learned is how to make a scale a drawing of buildings using scales of many units. of measurement.
