The library of Eratosthenes

Site description

Eratosthenes experiment : Put a staff to the sun, measure its shadow when the sun is at its highest point, deduce the angle of the solar rays compared with the vertical staff, then exchange your results with another class under another latitude. Then, a few geometrical drawings and a rule of three give you the length of earth’s meridian.
