In this experiment, students collect the height versus time data of a bouncing ball using their graphing calculators. This activity investigates the values of height, time, and the coefficient A in the quadratic equation, Y = A(X - H)2 + K, which describes the behavior of a bouncing ball. 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. Teacher notes, detailed instructions on using graphing calculators, and a worksheet with answer key aid in teaching the lesson.
