The Equation Of The Parabola In Standard And Vertex Form (This picture also contains the roots, vertex, curve, points, and the axis of symmetry)
What does the height of the water leaving the mouth represent?
The Origin or a Root
At the spot where the water crosses below the x axis, what is the relevance to the equation?
The ending point or the second root of the equation
What is the maximum height of the water?
0.51 inches was the maximum height of the water
How far away from the mouth was the water when it reached this distance?
What is the domain related to the distance the water is from the mouth?
What is the range related to the height of the water?
