Bungee Jumping Eggs!


video
The results of the final project in Algebra II are attached.  Students gathered data on the elasticity of rubber bands using an egg in a cheese cloth harness for weight.  After 7 test jumps the calculator was used to create an equation that can be used to predict the number of bands needed to safely bungee jump the egg from a significantly higher height.
