Algebra Application: Accident Investigation 
In this Algebra Application, students develop a quadratic mathematical model for calculating the speed of a car based on the length of its skid marks. Using this model, students investigate the corresponding parabola. The math topics covered include:
The culminating activity is for students to write a program, using either a spreadsheet or a computer language like Python, that can calculate the speed of a car, given the skid mark length and coefficient of friction as the two inputs. Note: The download is a PDF file that includes the link to the GoogleDoc version. 

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, yintercept, 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. 

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Quadratic Functions 
In this episode of Algebra Applications, three realworld 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.
