How far can a frog jump?
Construct an origami jumping frog
Collect Data: Mark
locations for each frog
jump. Create a
data table.
Analyzing Data:

1.) Determine mean, median,
    mode of frog jumping data set.

2.) Interpret your results by
     constructing a graph that best
     represents the answer to the
     question of “How far can a frog
     jump?”
Questions:
1) What factors affect how far
    your frog jumps?
2) Demonstrate Newton’s 3 Laws
    of motion with your frog.
3) Demonstrate energy changes
    that occur during a frog jump. 4)
How is an origami jumping frog
    like a metal spring?
5) What forces are acting on your
    frog during its motion?
Further Investigation…

 1.) Use your newton scale and a
     caliper to determine how much
     force is required to “compress”
     your frog for a maximum jump.

     Hint: you will need to modify
     your scale. (@5N)

  2.) How high can your origami
      frog jump? Outline possible
      experimental designs to
      determine this.
