Space Jam

Don’t take our word for it, but this lesson is out of this world. This lesson is a great extension to our lesson, Hang Time. Students will use their knowledge of quadratic function, solving equations, and solutions to equations to model and solve some cosmic applications of hang time and vertical jump heights.
