Day 3: What’s Wrong With This Graph?

IMG_20140905_150932

College-Prep Physics: Yesterday we did the Ball Bounce Challenge, and only a couple of groups chose to graph their data. Rather than lecture about qualities of a good graph, I gave students a bad graph that I made (pictured) and asked them to find and list all the things “wrong” with the graph. Then I asked all groups to graph their ball bounce data. (If they didn’t have enough data to graph, then I asked them to graph the data from the bad graph.)
