Accident Investigation 
When a driver slams the brakes on a car, skid marks are created on the road. Accident investigators can measure the length of the skid marks to estimate the speed of the car. This involves using a quadratic function. In this module, students use a quadratic model to predict the length of skid marks for various car speeds. The derivation of the quadratic model is shown algebraically and graphically. Students then use the model to solve a quadratic equation, given the total stopping distance. This module assumes that students are familiar with quadratic functions. Students will get a real understanding for how quadratic functions are used in the real world. 

SAT Math PrepLinear Equations and Functions 
Media4Math Classroom is developing a series of instructional modules for reviewing SAT math topics in detail. These modules review the key skills that are tested on the SAT with a twopronged approach:
In this module there is a thorough review of the topic of linear 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 test. 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.
