PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students apply their knowledge of parabola characteristics to a roller coaster example. This activity requires students to show they understand key quadratic characteristics: minimums, maximums, axis of symmetry, a-values, and finding the vertex from an equation. If your students are not ready for particular topics, then the file is available in editable formats so you can make changes to best suit your class.

The second page (the back) asks students to create their own amusement park ride that incorporates a parabola or parabolas. Collaboration is encouraged and this level of creativity allows students to connect with the material at a deeper level.

The zip file contains two different word formats and a pdf file.
