Bouncing Ball

Young scholars explore the concept of bounce.  In this bounce lesson plan, students collect data on the rebound height of a ball over time.  Young scholars use a motion detector to collect data on the ball as the ball bounces.  Students plot the data and determine the bounce ratio from bounce 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and so on.
