This poster aligns the words in quadratic word problems with the parts of a parabola students are being asked to find.
If a student is asked, "How long is the ball in the air?" the poster shows that the question is asking for the positive zero. If a student is asked to find the time it takes an object to get to its maximum height, the poster shows this question is asking for the x value at the vertex. The poster also aligns the words students will see when being asked for the maximum height of an object.
