This quadratic task will help build the relationship between a quadratic equation, its graph, and the real world story it represents.
In this task, a quadratic equation is given, along with a partially complete story about hitting a volleyball. Students must graph the equation, finding the vertex and zeros. Then, they can fill in the missing parts of the story. This exercise will help students recognize the real meaning of a maximum and zero.
An answer key is included. The task is in PDF format.
This is just one of the tasks included in my Real World Quadratic Graphing Tasks. Check it out!
