Module Two Post Five (Math in Basketball)


This website shows a picture of the angle in a free throw line. This is very important because free throw line is pretty hard to shoot because you can’t jump and if you jump that doesn’t count as a point so the way you do it is you need to have more power and force to reach the hoop.

This helps me because it’s important to know how hard is the free throw line and by doing that you need to have a greater angle to shoot.

Module Two Post Four (Math in Basketball)


This website shows that if you were taller like an actually basketball player than you might have an different angle and same as shorter person. If you shoot faster with the ball then mostly your angle will be 45 degree because that is probably the average.

This helps me because it’s important to remember your shooting skill to keep your score go up, not down. If you are short make sure you go closer to the hoop and shoot because than will give you more chance to score with your angle but tall person are way more different.

Module Two Post Three (Math in Basketball)


This website shows what is the angle of your arm when you shoot. The more you are on the right angle the better your shooting becomes and even if you bend too. 45 degree is a greater angle because it go in a smooth shot when you shoot.

This helps me because angle is a big important thing to shoot the ball in the hoop. Angle have a great force to shoot and the more you are bending the better you shoot.

Module Two Post Two (Math in Basketball)


This website show the bank shot and free throw. This is important because the free throw is you can’t jump and shoot, you need to just shoot. A 3 point line is very hard to make it in but if you hit the backboard it will for sure in an angle because it’s important.

This helps me because no matter what happen to the hoop you always have a backboard support to score. Backboard is important in a game and it helps mostly all of the NBA players.

Module Two Post One (Math in Basketball)


This website show the backspin of the ball. It also for the backboard when you hit it in a 50 degree. If a 6 foot person is shooting the hoop than he would be in a 50 degree because that the best for a 6 foot tall person.

This helps me because playing in a game helps to know what would it be if you are 5 foot than they will have different angle and their shooting. The backboard is useful for the basketball to shoot.

Module One Post Fourteen (Leaning of Pisa Tower)

Leaning Tower of Pisa Facts


The leaning tower of pisa in Italy seems like a miracle that is defying gravity`s pull. Since gravity force would be greater on objects with greater mass, it is fascinating how pisa tower is still standing with an approximate mass of 14,500 tonnes! Physicists predict that the tower would fall when its leaning angle reaches 5.44 degrees, but the pisa tower has been seen to reach an angle of 5.5 degrees before restoration work has been done between 1990 and 2001. With advancing technology in engineering and architecture, the tower is now standing at an 3.99 degrees angle. This helps with preserving this amazing architecture piece for another few hundred years or even longer.

Module One Post Eleven (Math in Basketball)


This website shows the percentages of an angle shot, the percentages of the half court shot, the basketball player use the determine of the percentages shot, and bank shot is use for geometry. If a player shot left side 45 degree angle then it bounced on the right side of the backboard.

This helps me because it show the percentages of the half court shot and it’s important because the coach can see what position should we use. It also show the angle of the distance shooting point from the backboard.

Module One Post Nine (Math in Basketball)


This website show the geometry about how to shoot, defend, and pass. Shows the hoop distance and the basketball too. The way you need to dribbling the ball and passing it like an angle. Even the shots.

This helps me because it’s important to shoot from an angle to get better chances. Always stay focus with the ball and the player moving because they might trick you and put your hands that the player can’t pass.

Module One Post Five (Shooting)

Cite used:https://physicsofhockeyproject.weebly.com/shooting.html

This website provides basic knowledge of the form, mechanics and projectile motion of shooting a puck in hockey. In addition, it shows what happens if you miss the shot. Unfortunately this site does not have too much information. This for me will be used more as reference page rather than a research page. Although may gather some important data, as i found some information extremely interesting. Definitely going to come back to this site again!

Module One Post Four (Math in Basketball)


This website show the backspin of the ball to shoot the hoop, in the free throw line you need to shoot perfect in the hoop, the arm need to be an angle to shoot the hoop nice and easy. If someone do a backspin the ball can hit the rim or the backboard. The more angle the more hoops you can get in. There is a magic formula that tells about the backspin.

This helps me because in a free throw line you can shoot the hoop without any defense men and it important so your team can get point, by doing that you need math to see the meters and how can you do it. The backspin is very good for free throw because it LeBron James of the USA takes a free throw during Team USA's Olympic warmup game against Great Britain at the Manchester Arena on July 19shoot better and get more shots in. When you always shoot make sure you always hit the backboard because when you hit the backboard it lets the ball to force in the hoop.
