Zeros of a Parabola

Students are introduced to an interesting property of parabolas and a method of proving that property using the TI-89 scripts. They then use the symbolic capacity of their calculator to generalize upon specific results. Finally, students identify the relationship between the x-coordinates of the zeros of a parabola and the x-coordinate of its vertex.

Lesson Planet has helped me find things that work but more importantly things that don't work for me as a teacher. Every teacher is unique in their style and Lesson Planet has helped me define my style.
