Algebra 2

Conic Sections - Parabolas

In Algebra 1, you learned about parabolas within the context of quadratic equations. In Algebra 2, we look at parabolas in a whole new way: as a conic section. In Conic Sections – Parabolas, we will explore the different aspects of The Parabola, such as the Focus and Directrix of a Parabola, which helps us develop the algebraic equation for parabolas. We will also look at strategies for Graphing Parabolas, including analyzing the Vertex Format of its equation, Finding the Axis of Symmetry of a Parabola, and finding the Y Intercept in Parabolas.
