In what format should the kids give their average velocity calculation answer, ie do they need to reduce the fraction or convert it to a decimal or whole number if appropriate?
We expect that the students give their average velocity calculation answer in decimal form as they will be provided calculators. However, we will not take off points from answers given in fraction form.
Are the students expected to launch the harness down the zip line themselves
Yes, the students are expected to release the harness and cable car on their own. A volunteer will help the students climb onto a step stool so that they can release the cable cars at a comfortable height.
