Algebra Students Test Predictions
students had fun dropping eggs from high places on bungee (rubber band)
cords. It was all part of an Algebra I assignment. Students used a
series of 1-4 rubber bands and tested the length of each drop. Then they
formed an equation, predicting the length of a drop at various heights,
with more rubber bands. They tested their predictions by dropping their
eggs from the Wilcox Gym roof and different bleacher elevations. Their
scores reflected the accuracy of their predictions.
