"It's Alive" - Bringing Parabola's to Life!

Have you ever wondered about the practical applications of a parabola in real life? Often in sports and daily activities, we observe and execute actions that mirror the shape of a parabola. Today, we'll delve into the anatomy of a parabola and explore where this mathematical concept manifests in our everyday experiences. Through today's activities, you'll gain an understanding of how to:

  • Create and solve equations and inequalities, including those that involve absolute value.
  • Create and solve systems of equations that may include non-linear equations and inequalities.
  • Translate between equivalent forms of functions.
  • Create functions and use them to solve applications of quadratic and exponential function model problems.
