Quadratic Function Models - Fuel Efficiency Context

CC_BY-NC-SA

A PowerPoint presentation associated with the context of fuel efficiency as related to speed in miles per gallon. The intent of the task is for students to articulate the meaning of the parameters (coefficients) of a quadratic function model.

Cal Clulus: In Pursuit of Justice!

CC_BY-NC-SA

This project involves a movie that was written by, directed by, and starring Dr. Scott Adamson and Dr. Trey Cox. The focus of the project is making sense out of average rate of change, instantaneous rate of change, and the Mean Value Theorem. Watch this clip first with your class before doing the activity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBRwU9ubYQo After doing the activity, view the 2nd part of the video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqy3VivFs9Y

Shooting Hoops! - Dan Meyer Three Act Task

CC_BY-NC-SA

In this lesson, students learn to graph quadratic equations, translate between the vertex, standard, and factored forms, and recognize the impact of changing the parameters of a quadratic equation.

Rule Time: Salute to Brakes

CC_BY-NC

This project involves a movie that was written by, directed by, and starring Scott Adamson and Trey Cox. The focus of the project is making sense of the idea of quadratic functions from a rate of change perspective. First, watch Part 1 with your class. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2huVGJXnH8 Then watch Part 2 after the problem has been resolved. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KStlLsmURcw

Wile E. Coyote - Modeling with Quadratic Functions (Writing project)

CC_BY-NC-SA

This is a creative writing project (dealing with Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner) dealing with modeling falling bodies with quadratics and solving quadratic equations. An optional aspect is to have students estimate the instantaneous rate of change.
