Bouncing Ball

High schoolers collect height versus time data of a bouncing ball using the CBR 2™ data collection device. Using a quadratic equation they graph scatter plots, graph and interpret a quadratic function, apply the vertex form of a quadratic equation, and calculate the maximum value of a parabola. They analyze the results and answer the case analysis questions on the included student worksheet.
