### Requirements

Students solve two problems involving the motion of projectile objects, modeled using quadratic equations. Students graph parabolas and use the graphs to answer questions about projectile objects. Students identify the maximum heights of the moving objects and discover how long each object is in the air before hitting the ground. Quadratic Word Problems Part 1 is the second of four activities for teaching and learning quadratic equations in algebra: Graphing Quadratic Equations; Quadratic Word Problems Part 1; Quadratic Word Problems Part 2; and Quadratic Functions in Vertex Form.

» Lesson Plan and Student Assessment documents are also available.

### COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS FOR MATHEMATICS (2010)

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-IF.B.4 For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship. Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-IF.C.7 Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-IF.C.7a Graph linear and quadratic functions and show intercepts, maxima, and minima.
