## Constructing Graphs

1.

A model rocket is launched and its altitude tracked over time. At 1 second the rocket is at 210 ft, at 3 seconds it is at 450 ft, and at 6 seconds it is at 360 ft.

a) Sketch a graph of the rocket's altitude over time and label.

b) Is the graph linear?

c) What is the approximate height which the rocket reaches?

2.

Karen opens a savings account and deposits $50 each month into it. Sarah opens a savings account as well and deposits $1. Each month she will deposit twice as much as the previous month.

a) Sketch and label a graph showing the total savings in each girl's account. Make the graph show the first year that the girls have the accounts.

b) After 6 months who has saved more?

c) Did both girls choose saving plans that are practical? Explain your reasoning.

The altitude of a weather balloon is tracked after it is released. The data at 1, 2, 6, and 30 minutes shows altitudes of 780, 1,600, 4,850, and 22,000 feet.

a) Graph and label this relationship.

b) Is this graph linear or non-linear? Explain your reasoning.

Tony starts an ice cream stand and tracks his net income over time. After 1 month his net income is -$400. After 2 months the net income is $400. At 3 months the net income is $1,100 and after 5 months it is $2,200.

a) Using the tables, fill in the given values and then find the pattern to fill in the remaining values for the first 10 months of business.

b) If this trend continues, what is the most that Tony can ever expect to make in a month?

c) How far was Tony in debt when he started the business?

Keely sells skateboards at a kiosk. She has been selling them for $45 each and averaging 10 sales per day. She found that if she drops the price by $3 each, she sells 1 more skateboard each day.

a) Define the function that describes her total revenue, dependent upon the amount she adjusts her price and quantity of sales.

b) Graph and label this relationship.

c) Can Keely make more money than she is right now? If so how much can she make per day?

d) What is the price she should be selling the skateboards at in order to maximize profit?
