Objective:

- Understand how initial velocity influences velocity, distance, and acceleration of falling objects.

Warm-up:

- What is the quadratic formula?
- What is it used for?

**HW Due:**Falling Objects Worksheet EOC

Initial Velocity:

- finish table 2

2. Update formulas

Distance to ground dg (solve for t using quadratic formula)

Time it takes to hit the ground: tf

Distance to ground dg (solve for t using quadratic formula)

Time it takes to hit the ground: tf

Problem of the Week: The Flying Delorean

Now that we have formulas that can describe an object’s position, speed, and acceleration with a given initial velocity it is now time to apply it to a real life problem. Consider this ramp and a car rolling down the ramp and then off a cliff. Or in this case this ramp will be on the roof of the school. You will be tasked with figuring out exactly where the car will land by placing a dixie cup. This is a competition and the table group that predicts the right spot wins.

**Task:**Draw a diagram of The Flying Delorean and include the following:

- What is the goal of this problem?
- List the variables that will be involved
- List formulas that will be involved
- What measurements will need to be made?
- What is one thing you are confused about or foresee being a challenge?
