Basketball 3D

Basic operation Click “New Trial” to position the shooter (the shooter will be placed randomly on the half-field). Through the sliders adjust the parameters “” (horizontal direction), “” (vertical inclination) and “‍v0‍” to direct the shoot to the basket. Alternatively, in training mode, you can use the buttons to automatically set the parameters: "set ": will set the right horizontal direction "set ": will set the right vertical slope of the shoot (given the actual value of v0‍) "set v0‍" : will set the right speed of the shoot (given the actual value of ).   Click “Shoot” to start the animation. See the result and repeat the operation, In game mode a countdown timer will be started so that different player can compare their score (in the set time). A good player will be rather quick in finding the right parameters at each new trial, so having the opportunity to make many shots before the time expires. Yet he must not be too hasty to loose accuracy in adjusting the trajectory parameters and have many failing shots. The right compromise between quickness and accuracy will produce the highest scores. (In game mode the aids provided by the automatic settings of the parameters should be ignored). Note: given complexity of the simulation it's advisable to download the .ggb file and run it through the Geogebra desktop program. The web app may be rather slow and jerky. Here's a short demo video on youtube:
