In activity 1 we created a scatter plot on the calculator using a table of values that were given. Some of you were able to create a linear regression using your calculator's linear regression application. In this activity, we will look at data that is best fit by a quadratic regression. Remember that a quadratic is in the shape of a parabola. The parabola can either open up or open down. We will create a scatterplot by hand, create a scatterplot on our calculator, and find a regression equation on our calculator.

Remember, that a regression equation is an equation that "best fits" a given set of data. It best describes the relationship between the two variables. The regression equation follows the trend of the data.

Projectiles
When an object is thrown, we can measure the height above ground that the object is, versus the time that it take to reach that height. Ifwe graph the time on the xaxis and height above ground on the yaxis, the path ofthe object resembles a parabola. The object that is thrown, launched or kicked is called a projectile. A projectile is any object that is subject to the force of gravitiy. A projectile travels with a parabolic trajectory due to the force of gravity. The force
of gravity is 9.8 meters per second per second.

Gettin&: Started with a Data Set

The following data was found when a person threw a rock off the side of a cliff. The table shows the vertical height (h) of the rock relative to the top of CLIFF as time (t) passed.

Plottin&: the Data by Hand

You will be plotting the data on the grid shown below, graphing time on the xaxis (time is the domain and the independent variable). You will be graphing height on the yaxis (height is the range and the dependent variable). Remember that the domain is the set of all possible values of an independent variable of a function and the range is the set of all possible values for a dependent variable of a function. These are the same steps that we followed in activity 1.

At this point we are stretching the mind's capacity to use letters in conjunction with math. We have four letter sets, t, h, s and ill. Two of the letters are variables and two of the letters are unit indicators:

t represents time (replaces the traditional use ofx in math).

h represents height (replaces the traditional use ofy in math).

s indicates that the numerical value represents the number of seconds.

m indicates that the numerical value represents the number of meters.

Step 1: Label the taxis (normally this is the xaxis but we are using t to represent time) and the haxis (Normally this is the yaxis) of your grid. Let's start with the taxis.

· What is your smallest tvalue?
· What should be your smallest tvalue on your taxis? (Make sure that your smallest value is on the xaxis. You need to have your taxis go beyond the smallest value.)
· What is your largest tvalue?
· What should be your largest tvalue on your taxis? (Make sure that your largest value is on the xaxis. You need to have your taxis go beyond the largest value.)
· Label these values on your grid below.
· What is your smallest hvalue (height value)? Think about this, can your height be negative?
· What should be your smallest hvalue on your graph? (Make sure that your smallestyvalue is on the yaxis. You need to have your haxis go beyond the smallest value.)
· What is your largest hvalue (height value)?
· What should be your largest hvalue on your yaxis? (Make sure that your largest value is on the haxis. You need to have your haxis go beyond the largest value.)
· Label these values on your grid below.

Step 2: Now that your grid is labeled on the hand taxis, plot the data points from the table onto the grid.

NOTE: It is very easy to confuse the graph showing the height of a projectile as a
function of time with a graph that represents the object's path, because they both are parabolas. However, even when a ball is tossed straight up and allowed to fall, its graph of height as a function of time is a parabola. Likewise if you drop something off a cliff, its graph of height as a function of time is also a parabola.

Step 3: Look at your data. If you were to find an equation of a function that best fits this data, would this equation be a line? Why or why not?

Would this equation be a parabola (quadratic)? Why or why not?

**Make sure to remember that you are trying to find the equation that would "best fit" the graph. Not the equation that exactly fits the graph.

If you have plotted the data correctly the equation that will best fit this data is a parabola (quadratic). Sketch a parabola that best fits this data.
Explain why your sketch of a parabola best fits the data.

Findin&: the Equation for the Quadratic of Best Fit Usin&: Your Calculator

Now, you will enter this data into the calculator and use the calculator to find the equation for your quadratic of best fit. Please use the instructions on the document labeled Regression Instructions on the Math 143 MLC webpage.

First, find the set of instructions that says "Graphing a set of data points on the TI 83" (making a scatterplot). Follow these instructions to plot the points on your calculator.

Once you have plotted the data on your calculator and you see a plot similar to the one that you sketched, observe the scatterplot.

Does your graph on the calculator look like the graph that you sketched? Why or why not? If they do not look the same, you might want to explore reasons such as window size, domains and ranges, sketched points correctly or entered data correctly in the calculator.

Once you have resolved any differences between the sketch and the calculator, look at the graph on your calculator. Do you think that a line best fits the data? Why or why not?

Do you think that a quadratic best fits this data? Why or why not?

If the data was entered and plotted correctly, it should most resemble a quadratic just like in your sketched graph. Now you want to find a quadratic that is a good "fit." We will find this equation using your calculator.

In the document labeled Regressions, find the section labeled "Finding a Quadratic Regression". Use those instructions to find the equation for the quadratic that best fits the data.

What is the quadratic equation that best fits the data?

After you have found a quadratic equation to best fit the data, try to find a cubic equation to fit the data. Follow the steps that you did for the quadratic regression but instead use the CubicReg key.

What is the cubic equation that best fits the data?

Graph this cubic equation in your calculator. Does this graph do a good job of approximating the data? Yes or No.

If you answered the last question, "No, the cubic regression does not fit the data points"  STOP. Think about a cubic regression. A cubic regression should approximate data points better than a quadratic regression. Go back and determine what you did wrong. Explain what you did wrong and fix the issue. (Hint: double check the value of "a" in your cubic regression)

Notice that the cubic regression and the quadratic regression both "fit" the data points, what are the similarities (differences) between the two?

Pick either the cubic or the quadratic regression to model the data set. Explain why you chose that equation? (Hint: pick the quadratic  why?)

Finally, we can use our model to make predictions or find other points on the curve that were not given. Using your model, after 4 seconds how high will the ball be? Locate this point on your graph. Both the sketched graph and the graph on your calculator. Label this point on your sketched graph.

After 15 seconds how high will the ball be? Locate this point on your graph. Both the sketched graph and the graph on your calculator. Label this point on your sketched graph.

If the cliff is 200 meters tall, when will the ball hit the ground? First you must determine what represents the ground. What represents the ground and why?

Locate both pointe s) where the sketched graph and the graph on your calculator indicate the ball hitting the ground. Label these point on your sketched graph. NOTE: Your graph will indicate that the ball hits the ground in two places. Locate both of these places on your graph. Why does only one of these make sense in this situation?

What is the tallest height that the ball will reach relative to the cliff? Locate this point on your graph. Both the sketched graph and the graph on your calculator. Label this point on your sketched graph.

In our situation, what values make sense for the height of the ball (what is the range)? Explain.

In our situation, what values make sense for the time (what is the domain)? Explain.

The path of a projectile can be modeled by the equation h = ha + vat +_!_at^{2} where his
2
the vertical height of the object at time t, ha is the initial height of the object, va is
the initial velocity of the object, and a is the acceleration due to gravity. In our scenerio, since the height of the object is in meters, a should equal about 9.8 since this is the acceleration due to gravity. Check your equation and see if that is pretty
close. Notice that your coefficient of t^{2} is _!_ times a so your coefficient of t^{2} should
2
be about 4.9. Also, in your sketch, does your parabola open up or down?

What part of your quadratic equation tells whether the graph should open up or down?

In your equation, what is the initial height (the height when time, t = 0) of the ball relative to the cliff? Why do you think this is?

In your equation, what is the initial velocity of the ball (va in the equation or the coefficient of the t term)?

This includes unauthorized use of a solutions manual, mathematical software or website. The student will earn a zero for that assignment and will be referred to the Dean's Office. A second instance of academic dishonesty will result in a failing grade for the course. It is each student's responsibility to become familiar with the student code of conduct and academic integrity policy found in the Florida SouthWestern State College catalog.

VII. ATTENDANCE POLICY:
· This is an online course  there are no scheduled meeting times.
· The first day of the Spring 2018 semester is Monday, August 20, 2018.
· Attendance Verification Requirement: A student's attendance in this course will be verified upon the
completion of the following all three activities:
1. Completing the first homework assignment on section 3.1 in MyLabsPlus
2. Completing the second homework assignment on section 3.2 in MyLabsPlus
3. Completing discussion Board Activity "Introduce yourself" in Canvas

Failure to complete the three activities listed above by August 27,201811:59 PM EST may prevent the students from receiving their financial aid. Please be sure to complete these activities in a timely manner.

VPAA: Revised 9/11, 3/14, 11/16

MAT 1033 INTERMEDIATE ALGEBRA

Upon the Attendance Verification Requirement is fulfilled, instructor will verify student attendance by August 28, 2018 11:59 PM EST (by midnight). The Financial Aid Office must verify that students receiving Title IV funds attend/ participate in class. Students must repay their Title IV funds if not attending class through the end of the withdrawal period. Any student who stops attending/participating in class and does not officially withdraw will be assigned a grade of "F".

The course grade will be calculated based on:

Before computing the homework average, the lowest two homework scores will be dropped. All test grades count toward the final grade. No test grades will be dropped. If a test is not taken, the assigned score for that test is zero. The final exam is weighted 25. Additionally, before computing the final score for the course, the lowest score among the scores (test 1, test 2, test 3) will be replaced with the final exam score provided that the final exam score is higher than the lowest among those three scores.
Final letter grade will be assigned according to the following scale:

90 100

=

80  89

=

70 79

=

60  69

=

Below 60
