 Browse All Lesson Plans Lesson Plan Name Grades Parabolas in Flight 9 to 12 (0 stars, 2 ratings)Students will film a trajectory then calculate the quadratic model for their trajectory. They will create a video to display online at teachertube. Podcasting Parabolas 7 to 12 (0 stars, 1 ratings)After an introductory lesson on parabolas, students will research parabolas, the general equation of a parabola from three points and photograph pictures of parabolas found in everyday life. Students will then organize the data to create and publish a podcast to be share with their peers in the classroom, as well as, around the world. (This is a 3-day lesson for the block schedule) Quadratics in Nature and Architecture 9 to 12 (0 stars, 3 ratings)Students will discover real-life applications of quadratic functions using video cameras. The students will learn how to write equations for the parabolas that they find in real-life. Seeing Math Everywhere We Look 9 to 9 (0 stars, 2 ratings)Through an exploration and photographic capture of parabolas throughout our environment. students will move from the “When am I ever going to use this?” to “I see it being used” stage in math class – specifically for quadratic equations. They will then research the related jobs necessary to "bring the parabola to life." Capturing Conic Sections with Digital Cameras 9 to 12 (0 stars, 2 ratings)This project will help students to make connections between math and the real world by having them identify conic sections in art and architecture in their communities. Students will photograph these examples of circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas in the real world with digital cameras and then write the equations for the graphs. I Spy 9 to 12 (0 stars, 1 ratings)Students use digital cameras to find objects in and around school that have the shape of various functions, conics, and graphs that they have learned. Students will also write an equation that could represent the shape.
