6th grade Mathletes used pumpkins to make predictions, measurements and gather data while applying potential energy (aka: Rubber Bands) to their pumpkins. They will upload their results on a shared document created by Mr. Orr, a math teacher in another state. Students all over the US and Canada are compiling and sharing similar data. We will be analyzing the data, noticing trends, and compiling scatter plot graphs to hypothesize about the number of rubber bands it takes to “blow up” a pumpkin!
