Barbie Bungee Jump
Course Topic(s): Developmental Math | Modeling: Dev Math | Linear Equations | Functions
This project is excellent when you have completed the chapter on lines. It has students create their own data and graph it and then choose a reasonable line, which represents their data. From there, they find the equation of their line (This will be unique for each group since each will be working with a different Barbie Doll.) and answer questions related to the bungee jumping habits of their doll using the equation.
