        Thinkport | Basketball and Functional Relationships

        Watch three demonstrations that highlight the functional relationships between a ball’s height and distance traveled in this media gallery from MPT. In the accompanying classroom activity, students create graphs to show the trajectory of a basketball as players pass it in different ways: with a linear chest pass, a U-shaped (parabolic) pass, and a V-shaped bounce pass. They then interpret a set of basketball-related graphs. To get the most from the activity, students should have experience graphing linear and nonlinear relationships on a coordinate grid. For a longer self-paced student tutorial using this media, see "Functional Relationships" on Thinkport from Maryland Public Television.
