Fireworks Display Portfolio

ALGEBRA 2 A

Directions: You are part of a fireworks crew assembling a local fireworks display.

There are two parts to the fireworks platforms: one part is on the ground and the

other part is on top of a building. You are going to graph all of your results on one

coordinate plane. Make sure to label each graph with its equation. Use the following

equations to assist with this assignment.

The function for objects dropped from a height where t is the time in

seconds, h is the height in feet at time it t, and h0 is the initial height is

h(t ) =

-16t 2 + h0 .

The function for objects that are launched where t is the time in seconds, h is

the height in feet at time t, h0 is the initial height, and v0 is the initial velocity

in feet per second is h(t ) =

-16t 2 + v0t + h0 .

Centimeter Grid Paper

Task 1

First, conduct some research to help you with later portions of this portfolio

assessment.

Find a local building and estimate its height. How tall do you think the

building is?

Use the Internet to find some initial velocities for different types of fireworks.

What are some of the initial velocities that you found?

Task 2

Respond to the following items.

1. While setting up a fireworks display, you have a tool at the top of the

building and need to drop it to a coworker below.

a. How long will it take the tool to fall to the ground? (Hint: use the first

equation that you were given above, h(t ) =

-16t 2 + h0 . For the buildings

height, use the height of the building that you estimated in Task 1.)

b. Draw a graph that represents the path of this tool falling to the

ground. Be sure to label your axes with a title and a scale. Your graph

should show the height of the tool, h, after t seconds have passed.

Label this line Tool.

2. State whether the parabola represented by h(t ) =

-16t 2 + 250t opens up or

down. Explain why your answer makes sense in the context of this problem.

3. One of the fireworks is launched from the top of the building with an initial

upward velocity of 150 ft/sec.

a. What is the equation for this situation?

b. When will the firework land if it does not explode?

c. Make a table for this situation so that it shows the height from time

t = 0 until it hits the ground.

d. Calculate the axis of symmetry.

e. Calculate the coordinates of the vertex.

f. Explain why negative values for t and h(t ) do not make sense for this

problem.

g. On the same coordinate plane from #1, draw a graph that represents

the path of this firework. Make sure that your graph is labeled

appropriately. Label this graph Firework #1.

4. Choose an initial velocity for a firework based on your research from Task 1

a. Write an equation that represents the path of a firework that is

launched from the ground with the initial velocity that you chose.

b. Suppose this firework is set to explode 3 seconds after it is launched.

At what height will this firework be when it explodes?

c. On the same coordinate plane that you have been using, draw a graph

that represents the path of this firework. Mark your graph to indicate

the point at which the firework will explode. Label this graph Firework

#2.

5. You launch a third firework. Decide whether you want to launch it from the

ground or from the roof of the building. Also, choose a height at which this

firework will explode and an initial velocity for this firework.

a. How long after setting off the firework should the delay be set?

b. On the same coordinate plane that you have been using, draw a graph

that represents the path of this firework. Mark your graph to indicate

the point at which the firework will explode. Label this graph Firework

#3.

6. What can you conclude about how the height of the building and the initial

velocity of the item launched affect the maximum height and the time it

takes to get there?

Task 3

You will submit the following items.

results of your research, including the height of the building that you found

and initial velocities for fireworks
