Ball Bounce Revisited

Published on 10/11/2005

Activity Overview

This activity uses the peaks of the ball bounce data to produce an exponential function.

Before the Activity

Give the students a copy of the Ball Bounce Revisited Worksheet

During the Activity

If students have already collected ball bounce data from a previous activity, they may use it here to analyze. If not, they may need to use a CBR™ and Calculator to generate the data.

After the Activity

Discuss with the students the implications of using the peaks to form an exponential function. The answer key is attached.
