2. Determine what the problem is asking for and how you will use it.

a. The vertex?

b. The max?

c. The min?

d. The zeros?

e. Something else?

3. Use the graph to locate what the question is asking for.

4. Reread the problem to double-check your work.

Use your skills…

1. A ball is thrown vertically with an initial speed of 80 feet per second. The height h,

in feet, above the starting point after t seconds is given by the equation

f (h) = −16 t 2 + 80 t . What is the maximum height reached by the ball?

Step 1: Plug the equation into the calculator. Sketch the graph below.

Step 2: What is the question asking for? Where on the graph will you find the

answer?

Step 4: Does this answer make sense for what the question is asking?

About 500 years ago Galileo discovered the basic mathematical relationship that

describes vertical motion. Vertical motion is the motion of an object that is thrown, hit,

dropped, or shot straight up or straight down. Galileo found that vertical motion can be

modeled by the equation:

y = −16 x 2 + vx

In this equation, y is the number of feet above the place where the object starts moving,

x is the time in seconds from the moment the object starts moving, and v is the initial

velocity (or speed) in feet per second.

Task 1

Suppose Barry Bonds hits a foul ball straight up with an initial velocity of 160 feet per

second.

1. Write the equation for vertical motion of the ball.

2. How high is the ball (above the level at which his bat hit it):

a. 1 second after it is hit?

b. 2 seconds?

c. 10 seconds?

d. 15 seconds?

3. Do all the answers to question 2 make sense in this problem situation? Why or why

not?

4. When will the ball be back at the same height at which Barry hit it? How do you know?

6. When is the ball 384 feet above the point at which Barry hit it? (HINT: Think about

whether there is more than one answer!)

7. When is the ball 364 feet higher than the level at which Barry’s bat made contact with

it? (HINT: Think about whether there is more than one answer!)

8. Use the information you have found so far about the problem situation to fill in this

table.

X

Task 2

Suppose Mark McGwire hits a foul ball from the ground straight up with an initial

velocity of 80 fet per second.

2. How high is the ball (above the level at which his bat hit it):

a. 1 second after it is hit?

b. 2 seconds?

c. 5 seconds?

d. 10 seconds?

3. Do all the answers to question 2 make sense in this problem situation? Why or why

not?

4. When will the ball be back on the ground? How do you know?

6. When is the ball 384 feet off the ground? (HINT: Think about whether there is more

than one answer!)

7. When is the ball 96 feet off the ground? (HINT: Think about whether there is more

than one answer!)

8. Use the information you have found so far about the problem situation to fill in this

table.

9. What is a major difference between where the ball was hit in this task and where it

was hit in Task 1? How does the difference affect how y is defined in each task?

10. In Task 1, if you knew that Barry hit the ball with his bat when the ball was 3

feet in the air, what would you have to do to the y-values so that you could

represent the ball’s height above the ground instead of only its height from the

level at which he hit it?

11. Continue to assume that Barry hit the ball when it was already 3 feet in the

air. If your answer for problem 1 in Task 1 represents its height above that point,

how could you symbolically express its height above the ground?

12. If Barry hits the ball when it was already 3 feet in the air, what is the highest the

ball will travel?
