This topic introduces the student to solving real-world problems that can be modeled through quadratic equations. This series of two lessons shows the student problems that involve area, the Pythagorean Theorem, and gravity.
In this lesson, the student is shown application problems that can be modeled by quadratic equations. The student learns how to write area and Pythagorean Theorem problems as quadratic equations. The student also learns how to solve such problems.
This lesson teaches the student how to solve application problems that involve gravity. The student learns the formula for the height of an object affected by gravity. The student also learns how problems of this type are modeled by quadratic equations and how to solve problems using these models.
