Students will build and launch a catapult in this project. They will collect data such as time and distance of the launch. Using this information, they will plug data into the excel file provided and it will generate the a, b, c values to the quadratic function or the h and k values of their average launches. Given these values, students will create a formula for their launch and answer questions about the launch.
