Soooooo Tall!! unavailable

(View Complete Item Description)

Students will build a figure out of legos. There are two groups, and each group is competing with the other. Students build their tower of legos as high as they can and then measure with a ruler or yard stick. The tower has to be free-standing so the children have to think of ways to keep the tower standing by itself.

Barbie Bungee unavailable

(View Complete Item Description)

In this lesson, students model a bungee jump for a Barbie doll. They collect data in a table (number of rubber bands and jump distance), then create a scatterplot of the data, find its line of best fit, and write an equation of that line. Students go on to analyze the equation, noting its slope in relation to the data collected, and the meaning of the y-intercept. Since the distance to which the doll will fall is directly proportional to the number of rubber bands, the lesson provides a scenario for examining linear functions.
