Barbie Bungee is the most anticipated and talked about activity that I do in my 7th grade Pre-Algebra class. Sadly, I will not get to teach next year’s 7th graders since I am changing schools. So, my 6th grade students asked me if we could do Barbie Bungee THIS year! Barbie Bungee is such a great learning experience, and what other time do students actually BEG for a math lesson? Of course I said yes! I had a blast, and I hope that they gained experience in scatterplots, lines of best fit, and linear equations.
