 ## Display Title Algebra Applications: Quadratic Functions

In this episode of Algebra Applications, three real-world explorations of quadratic functions are developed: Pyrotechnics. Fireworks displays are elegant examples of quadratic functions. Forensics. The distance a car travels even after the brakes are applied can be described through a quadratic function. Medicine. From the time a baby is born to the time it reaches 36 months of age, there is dramatic growth in height and weight. An analysis of CDC data reveals a number of quadratic models.
