How I Use It
This is a great app to use to add in some hands-on activities into studying quadratic functions. I used it by setting up stations for student data collection. They used basketballs, hockey, etc. to get quadratic movement that they could record. Students then determined the equations.
My Take
Its a bit difficult to track the exact quadratic movement, but once students had some "play time" with it, they enjoyed using it.
