Algebra Application: Fireworks Displays

In this Algebra Application, students develop a quadratic mathematical model based for the path of fireworks. Using this model, students investigate the properties of parabolas, including orientation, y-intercept, and vertex. The math topics covered include:

  • Mathematical modeling
  • Quadratic functions in standard, vertex, and factored form
  • Curve fitting
  • Solving equations

The culminating activity is for students to plan a fireworks displays that mathematically uses the properties of quadratics restricted to the first quadrant. Given the coordinates of the vertices, what are the equations of parabolas that fit the given parameters.
