Angry Birds

Make math enjoyable while playing a favorite game! Learners fly their way through quadratic equations as they predict the flight path of an Angry Birds character. The lesson incorporates some play time of the game, followed by an article discussion on how the game connects to parabolic motion. The final task is to create their own equation to hit the target provided on the worksheet.
