The Barbie Bungee Drop
What do math, bungee jumping, and Barbie® have in common? Young adventure seekers use rubber bands as bungee cords to predict a thrilling, but safe, jump for their doll. First, test jumps are conducted with a few rubber bands. Then more rubber bands are added until a graph can be built and a prediction equation can be calculated.
