2.7.5: Practice - Modeling Pumpkin Launch Use the questions below to keep track of key concepts from this lesson's study activity. YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Splatapults Away! The engineering club has built a catapult and wants to test it out. The local supermarket has donated some overripe fruits and vegetables, and now the club is holding a Splatapult challenge to see who can hit the most targets. The catapult can launch food pretty far and make a real mess! In order to hit a target and win the Splatapult challenge, you'll need to aim the catapult just right. Use the Graphing Tool and your knowledge of quadratic functions to help you model the flight paths of the di ff erent projectiles and hit the target. Organize your information 1. Which fruit or vegetable did you select? List the information you know about its path. (2 points: 1 point for the selection, 1 point for the values) Tomato because it travels 60 feet away and acquires a maximum height of 45 feet.
