GAHS BBALL 2
- Jonathan Gregori
First, view the image and the ball's path. Do you think the shot will go in the hoop? Then, input the coordinates of points A, B, C, and/or D to create a line in your calculator. What type/shape of line did you graph? Finally, manipulate the sliders a, h, and k to create the line of the ball's path towards the basket. Based on mathematics, and the line created, will the shot likely go in the hoop?
Was your initial guess about the shot going in supported by the mathematics? In what way does manipulating the 'h' slider affect the line created?
