Rule Time: Salute to BrakesThis 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)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.
