“Hey look kids — it’s Trig Ben, Parliament!”

Here’s my first entry in Dan Meyer’s “What Can You Do With This?” meme.

The artifacts: Two photos taken from a tourist’s turn on the London Eye, one from eye-level with Big Ben and the other from well above the famous London landmark.

What meaty, mathy problems can you dream up out of these photos? Tune in next time for the questions my students asked (and answered).
