Build a Bungee

  • Energy
Grades:
  • 9–12
Level: 4
Students will simulate a safe bungee jump using rubber bands and a small doll or action figure. Through experimentation, students will generate a linear equation to represent the relationship between the number of rubber bands and the distance the doll
