The Gravity of the Situation

Your class will love this hands-on approach to learning about quadratic curves. Partners drop a ball and record its position using a Calculator Based Lab and a graphing calculator. They transfer the data to a spreadsheet and generate a quadratic curve which is compared to expected results.

I've been playing around in the account all morning and I have to say I'm very impressed! The site is amazing! I'm also a Title I tutor (and a summer tutor) so this will help me out a TON when coming up with materials for my students both during Title I tutoring and summer tutoring! The amount of time Lesson Planet will save me is going to be mind blowing!
