Product Description
Students will build a mechanism using given supplies to launch a ping pong ball. The goal of the project is to make the launcher consistent so that they can write an accurate quadratic equation to model the path of their ping pong ball. Students will then predict how long it will take their ping pong ball to hit the ground after being launched from the top of the bleachers.
This project helps students better understand how to write a quadratic equation based on real projectile motion, why finding zeros is important, and how to adjust quadratic equations based on differing factors.
