None Worksheet #3-1 1. Graph y = -x2 – 4x + 12. Then identify the following key features. Vertex: Axis of symmetry: Maximum: Minimum: x-intercept(s): y-intercept: Domain: Range: End behavior: Interval(s) where the function is increasing: Interval(s) where the function is decreasing: OVER 2. Refer to the supplement if you forgot how to do questions 2 & 3. Read the scale carefully! 3. Calculate the average rate of change for the function over the interval [-4, -2]. Supplement – Review Average rate of change is essentially calculating the slope of the line between two points. Formula: Example: Calculate the average rate of change for the function f(x) = x2 + 6x + 9 between x = 1 and x = 3. First find the y-values when x = 1 and x = 3. You can do this by typing the equation in a graphs page and press control t for a table of values. Average rate of change: y 36 16 20 10 x 3 1 2 Worksheet #3-8 1. The fuel efficiency of a vehicle can be modeled with a quadratic function over a limited span of typical highway speeds. Suppose that a certain car has its best efficiency, 34 miles per gallon, at a speed of 42 miles per hour. At 70 miles per hour the efficiency is reduced to 20 miles per gallon. a. Write a quadratic function in vertex form that models the car’s efficiency. b. What speed(s) will result in an efficiency of 25 miles per gallon? c. Over what domain of speeds is this function a sensible model of fuel efficiency? Justify your answer. OVER 2. A certain fireworks rocket is set off at an initial upward velocity of 440 ft/s. This particular rocket is designed to explode at the height of 3000 ft. Assume the firework is set off at ground level. How many seconds does it take for the rocket to explode? 3.
