My Algebra II Honors class has been building a function to model the position of a basketball dropped from rest. We analyzed a video of a basketball falling in the classroom to build a quadratic model, and here we are testing it off a tall balcony at the school’s boathouse. During our work we got to figure out many different ways to measure the height of the boathouse using math, like using trig, or just counting the strips of wooden siding.

This is a step along the way in our efforts to do our own Ana Soler project in our classroom.
