1
What do we know about parabolas?

2
Conic Slice

3
Algebraic Definition Parabola: For a given point, called the focus, and a given line not through the focus, called the directrix, a parabola is all of the points such that the distance to the focus equals the distance to the directrix. Focus: A given point inside the Parabola Directrix: A line perpendicular to the axis of symmetry

5
Why do we have a focus point? -Reflective property

6
Vertex: (0,0)

7
What happens if the vertex is at the origin and the focus is to the right of the origin? -How would that change the equation

8
Example #1 Vertex=(0,0) Focus=(0,-2)

9
Example #2 Vertex=(0,0) Directrix: y=-2

10
Example #3 Vertex=(0,0) Focus=(3,0)

11
Example #4 Vertex=(0,0) Directrix: x=3
