Bouncing Ball

A ball simulation, with bouncing, adjustable bounciness, and the ability to add some horizontal velocity. Some investigation questions are posed on the student sheet. The simulation offers a chance to use a piecewise function, to find points on parabolas or solve quadratics, use graph transformations, and think about motion in gravity.
