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.
