You are a Sports Scientist. You want to be an entrepreneur in sports. Your goal is to develop a model for the perfect shot and make it both reproducible and portable. In essence you want to copyright the perfect formula for a free throw in the NBA and sell the secret formula for BIG BUCKS!
You will begin by sampling shots in a way that is controllable and inexpensive. Your goal is to learn all about the curved path to the basket from release. If you can put a mathematical formula to it then computers might be better used as training aides...the profit potential is unlimited!
But first we need to get ourselves into our experimentation phase...and be excited! Remember: You are the Sports Scientist!
Click the Process link and begin after reading through the below material
This process should include the following:
Review Instructional Smart Notebook Lesson
Gather all Necessary Materials Required
Carefully Create Artifacts
Cooperatively Discuss Your Models with Classmates
Create A Reflection on Your Process for Teacher Review
Engage in Classroom Wrap-up Discussion
Do Extension Activities to Reinforce and Extend Knowledge
...Then create a PowerPoint about what you learned
After artifact creation and analysis, construct a PowerPoint presentation of no less that 5 slides and no more than 15. Your presentation should address obstacles and difficulties encountered..and how they were overcome, conceptual difficulties which where clarified, and suggestions for improvement if necessary.
All physical models should be suitable for display and shall be publicly posted either in the classroom, or somewhere within the school building for peer review.
A formal peer review shall be done on the class webpage in the form of a discussion post, and shall be completed appropriate to said venue with regard to commentary, language and content. This review/reflection is to be a graded activity of self and peer assessment skills.
