What is a Quadratic Function?
Describe the motion of a ball rollling down a ramp as seen here.
Estimate the general shape of the graph of the elevation-versus-time of the ball rolling down the ramp.
If you jumped in the air three times, what might the elevation versus time graph of that story look like?
Label the axes appropriately.
b. Estimate the number of inches of change in elevation of the ball from seconds to seconds. Also estimate the change in elevation of the ball between seconds and seconds.
c. At what point is the speed of the ball the fastest, near the top of the ramp at the beginning of its journey or near the bottom of the ramp? How does your answer to part (b) support what you say?
If you jumped in the air three times, what might the elevation versus time graph of that story look like? Label the axes appropriately.
