BADMIN | This data set was obtained by dropping a badminton shuttlecock and recording its distance as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

BEAM | A cantilevered beam had different loads applied to its free end, and the vertical displacement of the free end was measured. | Increasing, Linear |

BRAKE | The distance in feet a car travels when braking in an emergency stop as a function of the velocity of the car at the time the brakes are applied. | Increasing, Concave Up |

BULLET | A bullet was shot from a rifle. The velocity was measured as a function of distance traveled. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

BUOY | The period of a bobbing buoy as a function of distance. | Increasing, Linear |

CAR | A car with manual transmission was driven on a long straight horizontal road at 55 mph. The car was taken out of gear and let roll to a stop. The time at which the car was traveling at 55, 50, ... , 10, 5, and 0 mph was recorded. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

CUBIC | The period of a cubic oscillator for different initial amplitudes. | Decreasing, Concave Down |

DENECKE | Paul Denecke, The University of Arizona, conducted the following experiment using a VCR equipped with a digital tape-counter. He put a tape in the unit, set the tapecounter to zero, and, as he started the tape playing, noted the time. He then kept recording the time and the number on the tapecounter. This data set was obtained in this way. It shows the number of revolutions - the number on the tapecounter - as a function of time in seconds. | Increasing, Concave Up |

FREEFALL | This shows data that correspond to a sky diver in free fall in a stable spread-eagle position when falling from rest. It shows the sky diver's distance fallen as a function of the time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

HOOKE1 | A spring was suspended vertically and various masses were attached to the bottom end. The extension was measured as a function of the mass. | Increasing, Linear |

HOOKE2 | A spring was suspended vertically and various masses were attached to the bottom end. The extension was measured as a function of the mass. | Increasing, Linear |

JUMPS | The results of an experiment in which people fell freely from rest from various heights. It shows the distance fallen in feet as a function of time in seconds. | Increasing, Concave Up |

LEWIS | The times achieved every 10 meters by Carl Lewis in the 100 meter final of the World Championship in Rome in 1987. | Increasing, Concave Up |

LIZARD | Experiments have been performed where a lizard is encouraged to run as fast as possible, starting from rest. The distance run is then measured as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

MILE | The table shows the year when the men's world record for the mile was broken this century, and the time for the mile. | Increasing, Linear |

OVERDAMP | The amplitude at various times for an overdamped pendulum. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

PEND02 | The period of a nonlinear pendulum as a function of the initial angle. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

PENDULUM | The frequency of coupled pendulums as a function of the inverse of the square root of a length. | Increasing, Linear |

PORSCHE | The velocity of an accelerating Porsche 944 Turbo as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Down |

RANGE | The results of an experiment recording the range of a projectile as a function of the initial angle of elevation. | Increasing, Decreasing, Concave Down |

SMS | A spring-mass-spring system with various masses was allowed to oscillate with no friction or gravity. This shows the period in of the oscillations as a function of the mass. | Increasing, Concave Down |

SPHERE | The data set was obtained by dropping a Styrofoam ball and recording its distance as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Up |

TAPE | Conduct the following experiment using either a VCR or a tape deck equipped with a digital tape-counter. Put a tape in the unit, set the tapecounter to zero, and, as you start the tape playing, note the time. Then record the time every 5 to 10 minutes along with the number on the tapecounter. This data set was obtained in this way. It shows the number of revolutions - the number on the tapecounter - as a function of time in seconds. | Increasing, Concave Down |

UNDER | The amplitude at various times for an underdamped pendulum. | Decreasing, Concave Up |

WATER | The movement of the wetting front as a function of time. | Increasing, Concave Down |
