Barbie Bungee

Today in math class, the 8th graders got to plan a bungee jump for Barbie off of the staircase.  We had to take rubber bands and tie them to Barbie.  The rubber bands acted as the bungee cord.  The goal was to get Barbie as close to the ground as possible without
touching the ground.  We did trials and recorded the height in our data tables.  We had to make equations to find the slope.  We used our equations to estimate how many rubber bands it would take for Barbie to bungee off the staircase safely.
