In this assessment, students use their knowledge of SOHCAHTOA, sine and cosine rules (in the extended version only), and angle(s) of elevation/depression to find distances between mountain peaks, heights of various points, and other measurements related to the 1995 movie The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain. Watching the movie prior to the assessment might provide additional value for the students. For this purpose, there is a list of questions (with answers) provided.
