Roman writer, architect, and engineer Marcus Vitruvius proposed, among other relationships, that a person’s height and their arm span (herein called “wingspan”) are approximately equal. In this investigation, students will collect data to assess whether or not Vitruvius’s proposal was reasonable. Scatterplots will be drawn to illustrate the data and a best-fit line will be overlain on the scatterplot. The equation of the best-fit line will be determined, and the slope interpreted in context.
