For this lesson, we are going to go over a couple of different types of angles: angles of elevation and angles of depression. We know that to elevate means to go up. So, an angle of elevation would be an angle formed by a horizontal line and an increasing line. We also know that to depress something is to go down. The angle of depression is an angle that is formed by, again, a horizontal line, and a decreasing line. To practice angles of elevation and depression we are going to solve a few word problems. Some of these problems involve ski slopes, and kites.
*These practice questions are only helpful when you work on them offline on a piece of paper and then use the solution steps function to check your answer.
