Students graph parabolas and circles. In this algebra lesson, students create a table of values and graph the coordinate pairs to create a graph. They graph a circle using the radius and center.
In this graphing parabolas worksheet, 10th graders solve 10 different problems that include graphing various parabolas using the given information. First, they determine the equation of the axis of symmetry for a parabola with a given turning point. Then, students write the equation of the axis of symmetry for the graph of the given equation.
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.
Students graph parabolas. In this problem solving parabolas lesson plan, students solve quadratic equations based as a scenario. Students discuss their graphs with their peers.
In this parabola worksheet, students graph parabolas, and identify the vertex. A coordinate plan is provided for each equation. This one-page worksheet contains four multi-step problems.
This worksheet is aimed at a first semester review of a second year of algebra course.  It includes a wide variety of problems. Specifically, there are problems using matrices, simplifying rational expressions, simplifying radical expressions,  solving quadratic equations including those with complex roots, graphing parabolas, using logarithms, factoring, solving systems of equations, inequalities, and creating linear equations.
Pupils use their knowledge of the vertex form of a quadratic equation to graph parabolas using a graphing calculator, given a specific move to make. this lesson plan may be used as a review or as extra practice, in groups or individually.
Learners investigate parabolas and their equations.  In this parabolas and their equations lesson, students graph quadratic equations on their graphing calculator.  Learners find the axis of symmetry of a parabola.  Students discuss the shifts of graphs as they are multiplied by a scalar.
Graph parabolas! Analyze the effects of parameter changes in the vertex form of a quadratic equation. The class inputs data in a spreadsheet to form the graphs. The lesson includes worksheets.
Students explore quadratic functions. In this function family worksheet, students examine the quadratic function and the family of functions. They identify the affects of the shape of the parabola and its position on the coordinate plane. Students graph parabolas.
Pupils determine the vertex, y-intercept and direction of a parabola and write an explanation of how to graph a parabola. They collect and graph data using a calculator.
Young scholars explore quadratic functions by examining a family of functions. Using graphing calculators, students graph parabolas. They describe how the changing values in an equation affects the graphical shape of the parabola and its position on the grid.
In this online math worksheet, students solve 5 algebra problems which require them to graph parabolas. This excellent worksheet allows student to check their answers, and gives the students "hints" should they encounter difficulties.
In this parabola worksheet, students solve algebraic equations, graph parabolas, and identify the vertex. This one-page worksheet contains six problems.
In this graphing parabolas worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 16 different types of problems. First, they describe how the graph of each function differs from the graph of the parent function. Then, students determine the vertex and axis of symmetry for each function and sketch a graph using the information.
When should I factor a quadratic function and when should I complete the square, or should I leave it in standard form? Learners find the answer to these questions in a complete, but fun, lesson about what the different algebraic forms of a quadratic function reveal about the graph of the function. The structure of the lesson includes individual work to assess initial understanding, collaborative work to explore and practice, and whole-class discussion to summarize and extend the lesson. Excellent detailed teacher notes are included, as are links to all necessary materials.
This is the last of three well-done videos on identifying and graphing conic sections from an equation. Here, Sal shows graphing a circle, not centered at the origin, and a parabola that opens downward.
Continuing from a previous video, Sal takes the discussion of the focus and directrix of parabola further. Given the parabola, y=x2, he derives the focus and directrix by matching parts of the equation he found earlier. He then, comes up with a more general solution to finding the focus and directrix of any parabola. Parts of this video might be a bit complex for some listeners since he uses variable names that may different from those traditionally used in some textbooks. The end of the video, however, does wrap things up nicely with an intuitive solution for finding the focus and directrix for any parabola.

Find the zeros on a given graph of a quadratic equation. What does this mean? It means to find the values at which the parabola crosses the x-axis. It seems pretty straightforward to be able to look at a graph and identify the points at which the line crosses the x-axis.
