ab: Summary: “How much can you bench?” appears in the “Mathematical
lens” section of Mathematics Teacher. “Mathematical lens” uses
photographs as a springboard for mathematical inquiry. This month the
mathematics behind the photograph includes finding areas of regular
polygons, right triangle trigonometry, the Pythagorean theorem, special
right triangles, and similarity and scale factors. (ERIC)
