Day 22.. Barbie Time!

Our school has an exchange program with a school in China. Every fall, a dozen students and 2 teachers come to our school. The students stay the entire month of September and the teachers stay through Thanksgiving. Then, in the spring, we send a dozen students and 2 teachers to China for the month of March.

This week, I had the pleasure of working with our Chinese exchange students in predicting the length of a bungee for Barbie to fall off our 2nd floor, which is a total distance of 20 feet. The students really enjoyed gathering data and creating predictions based on their data.

  1. Cool! I think every algebra teacher in my district is supposed to do Barbie Bungee this year. Looks fun!
