Challenge your students with this quadratic function task!
In this activity, students are given a scenario about flying a rocket and a drone. One can be represented with a quadratic function, and one with a linear function. Students must graph the heights of the objects over time and answer questions that will lead to critical thinking about this unique system of equations.
This task is a one-page PDF. Answer key is included.
This task specifically targets these Common Core Standards:
CCSS.Math.Content.HSA.REI.C.7 Solve a simple system consisting of a linear equation and a quadratic equation in two variables algebraically and graphically.
CCSS.Math.Content.HSF.IF.C.7 Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.
