Rebound Ratios
Rebound Ratios

This week in math class, 8th graders explored the decreasing rebound height of a bouncing ball.  They chose a type of ball and conducted an experiment to find its rebound ratio when dropped from a variety of starting points. 

After they graphed their data and found the line of best fit, they conducted a second experiment to see how repeated bounces altered this data. One example of the process they went through is attached as a Google Slideshow.
