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.

Sketch the Graph of a Parabola
How many ways can you graph a quadratic? The video shows two approaches to graphing a quadratic expression that is initially in standard form. The first method finds the vertex using -b/2a. The second approach is to find (h,k).
