PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This project is great for Algebra 1. The students will model projectiles with a quadratic equation and use that to predict where to place a target to hit the bullseye. You will need to buy various types of candy (each group gets a different type of candy) and some small catapults such as these on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Pitsco-Laser-Cut-Basswood-Catapult-Individual/dp/B0085YXVOK/ref=sr_1_23?ie=UTF8&qid=1453597014&sr=8-23&keywords=catapult. The students will gather data using meter sticks and video taping. For homework, they will find a quadratic equation that models the projectile and use that to determine where their candy will land. Then, you can have a class competition by placing the targets the distance that the students determined away from the catapult and see who gets closest to the bullseye!
