Quadratic equations are not difficult. They involve a mathematical expression in which two sides of the equation are equal and one side has a variable. This article describes the various applications of Quadratic functions in the real world. There are examples of everything from area and profit to examples in sports.
Quadratic applications are very helpful in solving several types of word problems (other than the bouquet throwing problem), especially where optimization is involved. This blog outlines more applications that crossover into science problems. Throughout the blog, the author provides broken down steps for setting up and solving the problems, as well as steps for using the calculator.
Shows a sample problem involving height and horizontal distance calculations that uses a quadratic function. In this video the trajectory of an arrow through the air is investigated. The narrator breaks down the steps to figuring out the different characteristics of the trajectory as it reaches different heights in the air.
