Transcript of Jumping Frog

Foundation Factors Our Experiment: Data Results Subjects One origami paper frog made out of newspaper and one origami frog made out of a grocery paper bag (2). The Problem: When making an origami frog, Which material will cause the paper frog to jump further, newspaper or grocery bag paper? *The weight of each type of paper
*The size of each type of paper
*The surface
*Folding accuracy and uniformity
*The amount of pressure applied to the tail of the paper frog
*Climate of experiment area
*The finger selected to push down on the frog Jumping Frog Experiment We began in the same starting point in the table. Measuring tape was used to measure our distance. The first frog used was the Newspaper frog. We made the Newspaper frog jump 10 times in a row. We then made the Paper bag frog jump second 10 times.  We measured the distance over ten jumps and got an average jump distance on each frog. Newspaper:
1. 3.5 in
2. 4.5 in
3. 2 in
4. 2.5 in
5. 1.5 in
6. 3 in
7. 0 in
8. 3 in
9. 2.25 in
10. 3.5 in Newspaper Frog’s Average Jump Distance: 2.63 inches

Paper Bag Frog’s Average Jump Distance: 20.77 Inches Level Of Factors A 5x5’ wooden table will be the surface
One folder (Alexis) will create the frogs
Weight of each type of paper: uncontrolled
The size of the newspaper used is 8.5 x 11”, The size of the Paper bag used is 8.5 x 11”
Room temperature is set to 68 degrees, no climate interference
Alexis’ index finger will be used to test each frog
An equal amount of pressure will be applied by the same conductor (Alexis) on the frogs. By: Alexis Salinas &
Raul Uriostegui Hypothesis: The paper
bag frog is a lot sturdier, thus it will create and build more momentum in its hind legs causing it to jump further than the newspaper frog which is already worn. Paper Bag:
1. 18.4 in
2. 21 in
3. 24.25 in
4. 25 in
5. 24 in
6. 23.5 in
7. 8.25 in
8. 10.75 in
9. 26 in
10. 26.5 in Conclusion In our Designed Experiment, we concluded that the frog made out of a paper bag will jump further than the newspaper frog. Our hypothesis proved to be true because the paper bag frog built more momentum in each leap due to its sturdier design when Alexis applied force with her index finger. The paper bag frog was able to build more momentum before each jump in its hind legs whereas the newspaper frog simply could not build enough momentum to jump far. The resistance, design, and weight of each material will cause the frog to build more momentum before each jump, thus leading to a greater average jump distance. The type of experiment we used was a matched-pair design because we used the same origami frog folding technique as well as the same size paper and tested them to see what the difference in distance was.
