Product Description
Get students out of their seats and engaged in quadratic functions! Students will analyze a situation in which a paper airplane is thrown from different heights. Then they’ll throw their own airplanes and collect and analyze the data!

This is a great way to get students excited about quadratic functions and assess their understanding of key features of quadratic relationships! Students need prior knowledge of quadratic functions and how to write them given x and y intercepts.

I usually guide the class through the front page and pause to have discussions at each point. This gives them enough prior knowledge and practice to move on to the next part. I allow students to work with a partner on the back page as I monitor their progress. They collect their own data and use it to complete problems similar to those on the front page.

Students will:
Graph quadratic functions
Write quadratic functions given x and y intercepts
Create tables from quadratic functions
Analyze a a quadratic relationship in a real world context
Collect and analyze data and use it to model a quadratic relationship
