Bungee Jump Accelerations

Students investigate the acceleration that occurs during a bungee jump.  In the Algebra II lesson, students conduct an experiment to simulate a bungee jumper and use an Accelerometer to analyze the motion.  Students determine the maximum and minimum acceleration and compare the laboratory jump with an actual bungee jump.
