Exploration Sequence of Bounces

New skills are developed as students use graphing calculators and ranger technology to capture and graph the sequence of bounces a ball makes when dropped. After recording the height of four or more bounces, they use the collected data to find the nth number in the sequence. They also choose the equation of the exponential function that fits the data, then predict the height of the sixth bounce.
