Product Description
Prime your students with this simple yet meaningful way to introduce real world applications of Quadratic Functions.

This sheet is simple to understand and carefully leads students to understand the meaning of the vocabulary words connected to quadratic functions.

Vocabulary Words Include:
vertex
parabola
Maximum or minimum
x-intercepts
x-axis
y-axis

This was designed to be foundational and prepare students to better understand what is being asked of them in tradition quadratics application problems.

Take it a step further and have students discuss how they might set up a "rough draft" of an equation for the dolphin's jump with out using x & y but time and height as their independent and dependent variables.
