This week students are collecting data to predict how many rubber bands Barbie needs to safely jump from the 6th grade balcony (493 cm). They were given 12 rubber bands and created a lab to help them establish a pattern to use for their prediction. Questions asked: How can we collect data that is more precise? What happens when data doesn’t show an even growth? What different types of patterns can you use to make your prediction? How can you show your prediction visually (table, graph or picture)?
