Product Description
This activity is designed for students to complete after learning about graphing quadratic equations. The activity gives students a real-life perspective on quadratic equations by using the vertical motion formula. Students will launch model rockets. (I launch one rocket per group or pair of groups. If you're too scared to actually launch them, you can find a video on Youtube or just give them some made-up times.) Using only a stopwatch and some math, they will determine how high their rocket traveled. This activity guides them through discovering many stats about their rocket. Students will be asked many open-ended questions in order to help them think more deeply about the meaning of the numbers in front of them. This activity has been designed as part of my International Baccalaureate unit on quadratic functions.
