Barbie Bungee

This week in Algebra students have been working on the Barbie Bungee project. The students conducted an experiment to determine how many rubberbands Barbie would need to safely bungee off the roof of the school. The students did a great job gathering data, making graphs and writing equations to give Barbie (and Ken) a safe, but thrilling jump! Most of the Barbies were able to walk away unscathed, a few however, definitely needed a medic!
Thanks to Mr. Windsor for helping us bungee Barbie from the roof!
