Creating and Exploring Simple Models

Miles Hubbard 

October 2007, Volume 101, Issue 3, Page 193

Abstract:
Students manipulate data algebraically and statistically to create models applied to a falling ball. They also borrow tools from arithmetic progressions to examine the relationship between the velocity and the distance the ball falls. A supplemental option is to use a Computer Based Laboratory (CBL) for this activity. Students use graphing calculators to manipulate the sequences (in the statistics editor). Students can plot their data and superimpose their model on the calculator.
