Modeling the Water Balloon Slingshot
Bousquet, Benjamin D.; Figura, Charles C.

In the introductory physics courses at Wartburg College, we have been working to create a lab experience focused on the scientific process itself rather than verification of physical laws presented in the classroom or textbook. To this end, we have developed a number of open-ended modeling exercises suitable for a variety of learning environments, from non-science major classes to algebra-based and calculus-based introductory physics classes. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
