Students will complete a Performance Task that involves modeling with quadratic functions and their graphs in order to answer questions about the path of a water balloon that is thrown at an unsuspecting math teacher!!In this version, the equation
This is another version of the Water Wars Performance Task. This time, the equation for the path of the water balloon thrown is provided in standard form. Students are asked to determine the initial height of the balloon, the maximum height, the
A third version of the Water Wars Performance Task. A quadratic function is provided with no linear term (b = 0) that describes the path of a water balloon that is dropped from a building. Students will use their knowledge of quadratic functions
A set of task cards on solving quadratic equations by factoring. This is great for solving equations using the 3 basic forms of factoring: - Factoring a trinomial (a = 1) - Factoring a difference of squares binomial - Factoring GCF
A fourth version of the Water Wars Performance Task on modeling with quadratic functions. A quadratic function in standard form with no constant term (c = 0) is provided that describes the path of a water balloon that is thrown. Students will use
A collection of all four performance tasks in the Water Wars Performance Task Bundle. Students will model with quadratic functions in vertex and standard form in order to model the height of a water balloon thrown by four different people.
