This activity is a "Lab" series lesson activity designed to supplement and enhance student learning after teacher instruction.
In this "Lab" students work in small groups to experiment with a ball rolling down a ramp. It allows the students to work with a set of data that is believed to be linear, but is really quadratic when graphed on the coordinate plane.
**It is important to note that the teacher will need additional supplies such as a ramp (longer the better), a ball, and a timing device.**
While this "Lab" can supplement any teacher instruction based on this topic, this "Lab" was developed to supplement the Eureka math module 1 lesson 2 for Algebra.
