“Attack on Titan”-based in-class assignment using similar triangles and the Pythagorean Theorem.

The front side is pretty straightforward proportional triangles:

A figure looms at the crossroads to Singanshina. It is casting a shadow that happens to fall at a mile marker that reads “300 meters to crossroads.” You notice that your own shadow is about twice the length of your sword …

You are 1.75 meters tall.

Your sword is 1 meter long.

HOW TALL IS THE TITAN?

The back side allows for discourse regarding where on the head you are targeting.
