Modelling a BasketBall Shot (IB MYP Grade 10 Maths)
1 DIRECT INSTRUCTION
This activity (lesson flow) assumes that prior teaching has covered Quadratic and Linear Regression Equations.
This activity is a Summative assessment which requires the students to apply the above techniques to a real life situation (Basketball Shot). What the students may need help with is how to use the computer based graphing calculator TI-84, which can be downloaded using a 90 day trial from the attached link.
The other link takes students/teachers through a step by step process of how to find the values of a quadratic regression equation.
2 INDEPENDENT PRACTICE
This summative assessment task requires the students to take coordinates (from Desmos, see image below), apply to a quadratic regression equation (using the T-84 Emulator), and then make predictions as to whether or not the shot will make it to the basket.
