Quadratic FunctionsStreaming Video - 2013
A baseball's flight, a swimmer's dive, a runner's long jump-all are governed by quadratic principles. Even the trajectories of streams of water from a fountain can be analyzed with the help of quadratics! In this program, internationally acclaimed mathematics educator Dr. Monica Neagoy uses the TI-Nspire graphing calculator to explore the nature of quadratic functions. Concepts studied in the video include quadratic functions and equations, standard form, graphing quadratic equations, and solving quadratic equations graphically. Examples from space travel and other cases of projectile motion provide real-world examples for understanding and clarifying algebraic concepts. All examples are solved graphically.
