In this math experiment, students look for a linear relationship between the height a bouncy ball is dropped and the height of its first bounce.
-One page printable for teachers who want their students to design the experiment; students make the decisions and there is little direction - they are just given the basics
-A three page assignment for the same task but with more direction, especially with recording the information that they collect
-10 questions for students to answer, following the experiment
-Solutions to 10 questions
My students really enjoy doing hands-on activities like this in math class. The process also helps them to understand the concepts of linear relationships more fully.
Concepts in this experiment:
-tables of values
-graphing points from a table
-Applying mean,median, mode
