Casting Shadows is a task on similar triangles for geometry students. In the problem, one fourth grader knows his height and shadow length and wants to use similar triangles to determine another fourth grader’s height, when only knowing the shadow length. Students are to critique the proof given on the height of the other fourth grader and construct their own response, using a template, claim, evidence and warrants.
