Spring Break

Hello all and happy Spring Break. Check your grades. Everything but the benchmark is in. Period 1,5 I didn't get your homework scores for the last two weeks. Missing does not mean zero. If you have stuff to turn in, take a picture of it and send it to me. That counts. Have fun. Mr. B

Period 5,7: Finish the worksheet found here.  If there is no starting height, then C = 0

Period 4: Finish plotting the points for the triangles and find the perimeter and the area.  Look a yesterdays post for the equations


Homework for period 7: Do the three word problems.  Look at yesterdays post for them.

Period 1,3: Finish the worksheet (also three problems).  If there is no starting height, assume C=0.

Period 2: Finish plotting the points for the right triangles, and graphing them.  Find the perimeter and the area of each triangle.

Perimeter = side 1 + side 2 + side 3
Area = (Base x Height) / 2

Homework for period 1,3,5: Solve the three problems from class using the equations
H = -16t2 + vt + c

Where v = initial velocity
c = starting height
t= time
H = H(t), the height we care about at our point of interest

Period 2,4: Finish the Pythagorean worksheet, both sides.

The three problems
1) If a rock is dropped off a bridge that is 30 feet above a
river, how long will it take for the rock to hit the water?
2) A tennis player hits a ball 1 foot above the ground with an initial velocity of 20 feet per second. How long will it take to hit the ground?
3) You drop a water balloon off a building 200 feet in the air. How long until it hits your friends head who is 6 feet tall?
