Barbie Bungee in math

Students are applying their understanding of patterns and linear work to make a prediction of how many rubber bands Barbie will need to safely Bungee off the 6th grade balcony. Students are trying to give her the biggest thrill jump, without injuring her. To prepare for the jump, students had the opportunity to use up to 20 rubber bands to come up with a rubber band prediction for her 14 feet 5 inches jump. Many students found a pattern by looking at how far she could jump with 10, 12, 14, 16, 20 rubber bands.
