        The Algebra of a Bungee Jump | The Ignite Show

        Students will apply an algebraic equation to the real life experience of bungee jumping in this engaging lesson.

They will predict the number of rubber bands required for a 16-foot-high bungee egg drop off of their school stadium bleachers. 2008 California State Teacher of the Year, Lewis Chappelear, shares his advice for implementing this lesson in your classroom.
