A Ball In Motion

• Energy
• 9–12
Level: 4
Students will investigate the relationship between quadratic functions and the parabolic path traveled by a ball in motion. Students will analyze data to understand the mathematical relationships that exist along the path of a ball in flight.
• Math
• Science

Can Machines Learn?

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 4
In this activity, students will explore a variety of real-world applications of machine learning and use the information to consider the potential advantages and disadvantages that come along with it.
• Engineering

Credit Card Debt

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 4
Description: Students consider the benefits and tradeoffs of using credit and learn about the role interest plays in using credit cards. Then, they create an equation that describes the length of time it takes to pay off a debt.
• Math

• IT
• 9–12
Level: 4
Working in groups, students will select a city and then use U.S. government census data to develop an algebraic relationship between time and population size.
• Math

Light the Bulb
