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.

I just completed my student teaching in Newark New Jersey. Creating unit plans became a breeze once I joined Lesson Planet. There was a plethora of resources for every CCSS. Thank you. I had veteran teachers asking me where did I get my resources. I am now teaching at my cooperative school. Yeah!!!!!!!!!
