VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Systems of Equations, Segment 3: Ballistic Missiles
A ballistic missile shield allows you to shoot incoming missiles out of the sky. Mathematically, this is an example of a linear-quadratic system. Students graph such a system and find the points of intersection between a line and a parabola.
