Barbie Bungee 2018

“Barbie Bungee” was the culminating activity for one of the topics in AP Statistics. During the topic they discussed concepts such as scatterplots and linear regression, which were used to make a prediction about the appropriate amount of rubber bands in Barbie’s bungee cord. After making their predictions based on known variables such as length of the rubber band and how far it would stretch, they calculated how many bands Barbie would need to stop short of hitting the floor after dropping from a known distance.
