Let me just tell you that when this began to come together I was so excited!
This idea came from a student!
First off, I needed Barbies!
We used the data to plot points on a line graph and did some fabulous math to extend our graph lines and predict how many cords would be needed to drop Barbie from a much higher spot.

We had some crashes and some that didn’t drop close enough to the floor. Which sent kids scurrying back to take another look at their data and try again. What? So much uses of those test results. Talk about hands-on learning!
