Barbie Bungee Drop

Eighth graders review the concepts of slope and y-intercepts. In teams, they determine the number of rubber bands needed to allow their action figure to come as close to the floor as possible without hitting it. As each drop occurs, they record their data on a spreadsheet to determine the slope and y-intercept.
