Product Description
This activity connects what students have learned about quadratic functions to a real world problem found in the true story found in the movie "October Sky." It requires students to solve problems using one of the projectile motion equations, convert and report units, mathematically model the path of a rocket, and justify their results. This is a great activity for students to contextualize what they've learned about quadratic equations and connect it to the real world problems found in "October Sky."
