Quadratic Equation Applications (Projectile Motion) Scavenger Hunt
Given a quadratic equation that models an object's pathway, students will practice solving for the following:
1) Finding the object's maximum height.
2) Finding the object's height at a certain time.
3) Finding the time it will take for the object to reach the ground.
This is set up as a scavenger hunt activity. Students are given a recording worksheet, put in groups of 3-4, and assigned a starting problem. They write down the given equation, then solve for the missing piece. The answer they get to their problem will lead them to the next. Once they have completed all 10 problems, they will end where they started.
