Clinometer Project

July 7, 2014

This was a really fun project (for me, at least). I’m actually pretty proud of the clinometer that I ended up making. I took a basic protractor graphic and added the degrees and instructions.

I bought a bunch of hex nuts to use as weights. I had enough that if students wanted to keep their clinometers, they could.

Here’s the hall pass I made. I suggest making them BIG (3 to a page) and brightly-colored.

I thought this was a really good project. As with the mirror project, I think I’m going to have them just measure in centimeters/meters. I also want to try to find another angle of depression location.
