Bouncing Ball - Function Families
Read the Fine Print
Rating
5.0 stars
Overview:

Students explore quadratic functions by using a motion detector known as a Calculator Based Ranger (CBR) to examine the heights of the different bounces of a ball. Students will represent each bounce with a quadratic function of the form y = a (x - h)^2 + k. This lesson plan is based on the activity Tremain Nelson uses in the video for Part II of this workshop.
