Seeing to the Horizon from the Top of Mount Everest If you were standing on the top of Mount Everest, how far would you be able to see to the horizon? In this lesson, students will consider two different strategies for finding an answer to this question. The first strategy is algebraic students use data about the distance to the horizon from various heights to generate a rule. The second strategy is geometric students use the radius of the Earth and right triangle relationships to construct a formula. Then, students compare the two different rules based on ease of use as well as accuracy.
