the Livingston Academy Algebra II classes had our annual catapult competitions on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving break.  The purpose for this activity is for students to realize the flight of the ball follows the path of a parabola.  Students then have to write the equation of their unique parabola utilizing three points along the flight.  Students also also have to write another equations utilizing a time vs. gravity function.   They performed extremely well and built some creative catapults.
