Promethean Flipchart: Algebra Applications: Space Travel 1
Scientists use conic sections to map the trajectories of spacecraft in flight. The setting for this episode is a planned future flight to Mars. As the ship travels from Earth to Mars, parabolic, circular, and elliptical paths are explored. In the process students will learn the difference between a quadratic relation and a quadratic function. T he liftoff and pre-orbital path of the rocket is described by a parabola. Students explore the properties of parabolas from the standpoint of the parametric equations that describe the horizontal and vertical directions of motion for the rocket. Note: The download for this resources is the Promethean Flipchart.
