Modeling a soccer throw-in with Quadratics

In this simple applet, a series of photographs are mashed together to show the path of a soccer ball in a throw-in. Sliders are used to manipulate the function to "fit" the path. Students are then tasked with converting the quadratic in vertex form to standard form.
