Vertical Jump Analysis

Activity, Hands-on, Interesting, Investigation

This website and accompanying app is an accessible way to demonstrate how mathematics is used to improve sporting achievements. It looks to mathematical model an individual's hang time (hang time = length of time from when feet leave the ground to touching back down again). Suitable for advanced year 10 to Extension kids. Would make a great basis for an investigative task. 

While this app isn't free and costs $2.99 from Apple Store, it could be well worth the investment to increase student engagement.
