Students discover how the parameters of an equation of a parabola affect its graph and affect a real-world problem.
Visit MathNspired.com for additional Action Consequence activities and information.
Students will begin by changing the sliders for the parameters of equation of a parabola in vertex form on an interactive Graphs page and observing the effects each has on the graph of the parabola. They will determine how the changes affect a real-world problem.
Then students will apply what they have learned to find an equation of a parabola with given characteristics.
