Day 3: Drop Time!

Using data collected yesterday, students had to predict the drop height necessary so their ball would rebound up to the height of the hoop.

    Guessing they fiddled around with the ball and determined (even if they did not know what to call it) the coefficient of restitution. Did you then set the hoop height and they calculated drop height? One chance?

    Yes on all counts! Each group had a different ball. Not all groups were successful, but that’s what we’ll explore and I hope to help those students make sense of the idea of proportional reasoning.
