Monday 4/14

Period 2-6: Do the first two problems on the three problem worksheet. Tomorrow we will learn graphing on a computer and how this applies to stuff. 

Period 7: We turned in the 1.1 perimeter packet, you receved 1.2.  You do not have to do anything until Wednesday.

Algebra: These are the problems

1. You toss a rock into the air with an initial velocity of 20 ft/s.  H
A. How long until it hits the ground?

B. How high is it after 1 second?

2. Jesus threw a tennis ball to Dina, who was on a balcony 24 feet above him, with an initial velocity of 44 ft/s.  He threw it from an initial height of 4 feet.  Dina missed the ball on the way up, but caught it on the way down.
            A. How long was the ball in the air?

                B. If she missed it, how long would it take to reach
                Jesus again? (hint: his hand is 4 ft from the ground)
3. A gun fires a bullet into the air with an initial velocity of 1220 ft/s. 
            A. How long until it hits the ground?

            B. What is the maximum height of the bullet (axis of symmetry)?

            C. How long did it take to get to the highest point?

Friday 4/11

Period 7: We started a little packet on perimeter.  Do up to question #3 (The cost question)

Notes 8.8 Algebra

And the three problems that go with it

1) If a rock is dropped off a bridge that is 36 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 throw a water balloon up off a building 200
feet in the air with initial velocity of 10 ft/s. How
high off the ground is it after:  2 seconds?
3 seconds?
4 seconds?
What does that last one mean?
