Product Description
This activity is a fabulous math investigation that really helps students connect abstract math to real-world decision making. In this activity, students must make a prediction about how many rubber bands will need to be used for a bungee cord to drop Barbie (or Ken) from a particular height (you choose a stairwell, a rooftop - something exciting!). Students then collect and graph data and make a second prediction based on their new information. Finally, students make the big drop - hopefully without killing Barbie and analyze their results!
