Catapulting pumpkin competition, have your class decide the winner! Fortunately they won't actually catapult real pumpkins, but will analyze quadratic functions represented in three different ways: analytically, graphically, and numerically. Using the key features of the graph of a parabola, the vertex and zeros, high schoolers determine which pumpkin goes the highest and which goes the farthest.
