SAT Math Prep—Quadratic Functions and Equations |
Media4Math Classroom's SAT Math Prep series provide a thorough review of key math topics covered on the SAT. These modules review the key skills that are tested on the SAT with a two-pronged approach:
In this module there is a complete review of the topic of quadratic functions and equations. This module covers four key areas:
Students are given ample opportunities to review and test their understanding of the basics of these areas, before moving on to the more rigorous types of questions they can expect to see on the SAT. Make sure your students are familiar with these four topics. While there is plenty of opportunity for concept review, the key to succeeding on the SAT math section is to recognize that questions require a good grasp of the concepts. |

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:
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. Note: The download is a PDF file that includes the link to the GoogleDoc version. |
