              Drawing Parabolas

              To practice drawing parabolas students learn how to create a table of results for a quadratic equation. They use these results as coordinates to plot the parabola. As learning progresses they use the parabola to model a real life problem.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to draw a parabola in the form y = x2 +a using a table of results.
              • Most students should be able to draw a parabola in the form y = x2 +ax + b using a table of results.
              • Some students should be able to draw and interpret the key properties of parabolic graphs.
