Path of a Bouncing Ball

Eighth graders use motion detectors with the TI-83 Graphing Calculators to follow the path of a bouncing ball in terms of its position in the vertical direction. They then use the CBL application on the calculator to select points on the graph to use to create quadratic equations that best fit the path of the ball.
