Students explore parametric equations by finding the horizontal and vertical distances traveled by a projectile.
Students engage in an exploration of parametric equations that model projectile motion. In the first problem, students study the path of a baseball after being struck by a bat.
A function table is used to explore key function values that relate to maximum height reached, horizontal distance traveled, and time of travel.
In the second problem, students explore the path of a golf ball. They drag a point along the parametric graph to populate a spreadsheet, which is then used to generate a quadratic equation.
