I think the field trip was a good experience. I’ve lived in New York all my life and I’ve never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge before, so I really enjoyed it. The weather was great and everyone was taking pictures of everything. The only thing that was annoying were the bike riders.
The main thing that stood out on the bridge was all the construction going on. It made it kind of difficult to see everything at one time. I believe that this trip was to use the information that we gathered with what we are learning in class. It made math very interesting.
CityTech Block: 1 min 25 sec = 85 sec
Brooklyn Bridge: 15min 22 sec = 922 sec
(320/86) x (x/922) – Cross Multiply
x = 3,430.7 feet
