First, just viewing the image, make a guess if the shot will go in the hoop. Then, input the coordinates from the left into your calculator to visualize the line created. Finally, manipulate the sliders h, k and a to create a parabola that matches the shots path, to determine mathematically if the shot will go in the hoop.
Just viewing the image, do you think the shot will go in the hoop? Describe how changing the value of 'h' affects the the parabola? Mathematically, will the shot go in the the hoop?
