Braking Distance

Students investigate braking distance for various speeds.  In this braking distance for various speeds lesson, students plot data for braking distances under three conditions, normal, using a phone, and wet weather.  Students find a quadratic regression line to model the data.  Students write quadratic inequalities that represent the speed intervals at which a pedestrian would be seriously injured.
