Rubber Band Catapult

Q: Clarify what base position means. What information are you asking for? Is it where we position the base? Example: Centered? Right or left? Angeled right or left? Degrees to the right or left? Same for the arm position? (section: Section 3 Data chart / paragraph: # 3 / sub-paragraph:  / line: 2)

A: Students should supply any pertinent information that shows they have tested the catapult and collected data to calibrate the device so that they are ready for range of target locations. Catapult designs may vary. Students should use terms that communicate the operational variables included in their design.
