#### Parabolas Are All Around Us

Moving parabolas off of graph paper and into the real world is the task at hand in this detailed poster project. First, learners perform a cumulative activity identifying many characteristics of an assigned quadratic equation. Next, they...

Curated OER

#### Podcasting Parabolas

Students explore parabolas. In this algebra and technology lesson, students construct the equation of a specific parabola, then take digital photos of real-life representations of these parabolas. Students create a podcast with a...

Curated OER

#### Review Graphing Parabolas & Circles

Students review how to graph parabolas. They practice graphing two different parabolas using the vertex and table method. They solve problems related to graphing circles, determining the radius and the center.

EngageNY

#### The Definition of a Parabola

Put together the pieces and model a parabola. Learners work through several examples to develop an understanding of a parabola graphically and algebraically.

EngageNY

#### Are All Parabolas Similar?

Congruence and similarity apply to functions as well as polygons. Learners examine the effects of transformations on the shape of parabolas. They determine the transformation(s) that produce similar and congruent functions.

EngageNY

#### Are All Parabolas Congruent?

Augment a unit on parabolas with an instructive math activity. Pupils graph parabolas by examining the relationship between the focus and directrix.

West Contra Costa Unified School District

#### Conics Introduction and Parabolas

Where did conic sections get their name? The equation and graph of a parabola are developed from the definition of the conic section. Teacher examples on graphing the equation and writing an equation from the graph round out the plan.

#### What is a Parabola?

What do you get when you graph a quadratic function? Not a line, that's the graph of a linear equation. The graph of a quadratic function is a curved line, either opening upward like a smile, or opening downward like a frown. The...

Point Pleasant Beach School District

#### Parabola Project

Class members select a picture that contains a parabola and construct a drawing of it using function graphs in the quadratic project. Individuals restrict the domains of the functions to create a more accurate drawing. They then submit a...

Texas Instruments

#### Properties of Parabolas

Explore the properties of parabolas in this lesson. Construct a parabola given a focus and a directrix on the Ti-Nspire. Write equations of parabolas in vertex form and determine the a value of a parabola given a focus and directrix.

Krista King Math

#### Graphing Parabolas

Explore graphing quadratic functions by writing them in vertex form. Learners use their skills of completing the square to rewrite standard form in vertex form. They recognize key features in the equation and transfer them to the graph,...

Concord Consortium

#### Walled-Up Parabolas

Jump at the chance to use parabolas. Young mathematicians apply trigonometry to explore the trajectory of a ball in different situations. Some walls cause the ball to bounce, so participants must consider all possibilities.

Curated OER

#### Stretching the Quads

Scholars investigate transforming parabolas. In this transforming parabolas lesson plan, they take the parent graph y=x^2 and transform it by shifting left, right, up, and down and shrinking and stretching. The class finds maximums,...
