  3. 3. Continued…. <ul><li>Draw straight line from protractor across the graph </li></ul><ul><li>Plot distance from tree on the graph </li></ul><ul><li>Draw line perpendicular to the distance point </li></ul><ul><li>Determine the height of the triangle= 700cm </li></ul><ul><li>Add height at eye level </li></ul><ul><li>Tree Height = 877 cm </li></ul>
  4. 4. Survey Data <ul><li>There were 400 questions in all to be asked. </li></ul><ul><li>The majority of the people responded yes or good and the remaining either no, bad, or maybe </li></ul>

  8. 8. Continued…. <ul><li>What environmental problems did you see - the runoff, the drainage system, loss of habitat for the animals, and the loss of wildlife </li></ul><ul><li>You can minimize the negative environmental problems associated with the mall by creating more drainage systems around the outside of the mall especially in the parking lot area. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Continued…. <ul><li>If we were mall designers, we would incorporate the following: more trees and plants planted around the mall, better ways of getting rid of excess leakage of car oil, and better drainage systems </li></ul>
