Modeling a Basketball Throw

Play ball! High schoolers explore the concept of quadratic equations through modeling how shooting a basketball can be expressed as a quadratic function. They impose a coordinate grid on the path of a shooting basketball and determine points to model the data. Additionally, they enter data into lists and perform a quadratic regression on the data.
