## VIDEO: 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. This video includes a Video Transcript: https://www.media4math.com/library/video-transcript-algebra-applications-quadratic-functions This video includes a Teacher's Guide: https://www.media4math.com/library/algebra-applications-teachers-guide-quadratic-functions |

## VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Quadratic Functions, Segment 3: Forensics. |
##
The distance a car travels even after the brakes are applied can be described through a quadratic function. But there is also the reaction time, the split second before the brakes are applied. The total distance is known as the stopping distance and this segment analyzes the quadratic function. This is an equation that can be used by accident investigators.

## VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Quadratic Functions, Segment 4: 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 that doctors can use to monitor the growth and development of children.
