Experimenting with STEM: The Barbie Bungee Jump
Rating

Eighth grade teacher Patrick Roda has students apply their knowledge of the line of best fit to design successful bungee jumps. He tells students that they will test their bungee jumps in the stairwell, with the goal of getting Barbie as close to the ground as possible without touching the bottom step. Patrick has his students begin by constructing a bungee with two rubber bands, attaching a Barbie, and measuring how far the Barbie falls. Students add more rubber bands, perform multiple trials, and record their results in a table. Using their collected data, students construct a scatter plot and determine an equation for the line of best fit. After making predictions about the performance of their bungee jumps, the students test their bungee jumps and discuss their results as a class.

Students will use ratios to demonstrate the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations. Students will solve problems using a cooperative, kinesthetic activity in which they will create a ratio table, then graph proportional relationships with their bodies to demonstrate that the ratio (or rate) is the slope that will always pass through the origin.

Slope (m) of a line (Coordinate Geometry)
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the slope (m) of a line. The applet has two points that define a line. As the user drags either point it continuously recalculates the slope. The rise and run are drawn to show the two elements used in the calculation. The grid, axis pointers and coordinates can be turned on and off. The slope calculation can be turned off to permit class exercises and then turned back on the verify the answers. The applet can be printed as it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a full description of the concept of slope, a worked example and has links to other pages relating to coordinate geometry. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.

Equation of a line - point - slope form. (Coordinate Geometry)
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the equation of a line in point-slope form. The user can move a slider that controls the slope, and can drag the point that defines the line. The graph changes accordingly and equation for the line is continuously recalculated with every slider and / or point move. The grid, axis pointers and coordinates can be turned on and off. The equation display can be turned off to permit class exercises and then turned back on the verify the answers. The applet can be printed as it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a full description of the concept of the equation of a line in point - slope form, a worked example and has links to other pages relating to coordinate geometry.

Throughout this lesson, the teacher will explain equivalent fractions, plot them on a coordinate plane, connect and extend those points, then discuss the importance of the relationship and explore what the students notice about the relationship. This lesson can help depend understanding of equivalent fractions as well as deepen the discussion into slope being similar to the fraction that we gave at the beginning of the lesson.

Hearing: How Do Our Ears Work?
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Students learn about the anatomy of the ear and how the ears work as a sound sensor. Ear anatomy parts and structures are explained in detail, as well as how sound is transmitted mechanically and then electrically through them to the brain. Students use LEGO® robots with sound sensors to measure sound intensities, learning how the NXT brick (computer) converts the intensity of sound measured by the sensor input into a number that transmits to a screen. They build on their experiences from the previous activities and establish a rich understanding of the sound sensor and its relationship to the TaskBot's computer.

SmartGraphs: Describing Velocity
Rating

This web-based graphing activity explores the similarities and differences between Velocity vs. Time and Position vs. Time graphs. It interactively accepts user inputs in creating "prediction graphs", then provides real-time animations of the process being analyzed. Learners will annotate graphs to explain changes in motion, respond to question sets, and analyze why the two types of graphs appear as they do. It is appropriate for secondary physical science courses, and may also be used for remediation in preparatory high school physics courses. This item is part of the Concord Consortium, a nonprofit research and development organization dedicated to transforming education through technology. Users must register to access full functionality of all the tools available with SmartGraphs.
