Bungy Barbie: Post One
In this new project for math, we're supposed to make a Barbie bungee jump from an unknown height, and not let any part of her body (except for her hair) touch the ground. It's a difficult task, and its hard to figure out what to do. I'm partnered with Denise and Alice. In this first lesson, we tried to discover what would be the best way to start the project. We decided to go for the based. We figured out a good way to make a bungee rope and measured the height of the Barbie and the desk. The desk is the first of many measurements that we are going to make. Because we don't know from how high we're going to drop the Barbie from, we decided to measure from many different heights to take away any problems we could have. We don't see any patterns yet, and I predict that this is going to be one of the most difficult projects I have done. We don't have a plan for next class yet, but I'm sure we'll figure something out and really figure out in which direction we're going to take this project.
