Physics: Bungee Jumping

Eleventh graders, using a doll as a bungee jumper, simulate an experiment to determine where the acceleration is at a maximum and minimum. They use an accelerometer to record and graph distance-time and velocity-time data. Students discover how both positive and negative accelerations occur during a bungee jump.
