Parabolas Algebra 2 Notes And Homework

Product Description

Conic Sections: Circles, Ellipses, Hyperbolas, Parabolas (Algebra 2 Curriculum - Unit 9)

This bundle includes notes, homework assignments, three quizzes, a study guide and a unit test that cover the following topics:

• Circles (Graphing and Writing Equations)
• Ellipses (Graphing and Writing Equations)
• Hyperbolas (Graphing and Writing Equations)
• Parabolas (Graphing and Writing Equations)
• Identifying Conic Sections written in General Form
• Writing Equations in Standard Form given General Form
• Solving Non-Linear Systems by Graphing
• Solving Non-Linear Systems Algebraically (Substitution/Elimination)

Bonus: Wall posters for each conic also included!

NEW: Assessments are now EDITABLE! Now you can easily make multiple versions or customize to fit your needs! PowerPoint and Equation Editor (usually built in to PowerPoint) are required to edit these files. There is a folder titled "Editable Assessments" when you download. This is where you will find editable versions of each quiz and the unit test. If your Equation Editor is incompatible with mine, simply delete my equation and insert your own.

1 Today in Precalculus Go over homework Notes: Parabolas with vertex other than (0,0) Homework

2 When a parabola with vertex (0,0) is translated horizontally h units and vertically k units the vertex becomes (h, k) The translation does NOT change the focal length, the focal width, or the direction the parabola opens.

3 Parabolas with vertex (h,k) Standard Equation(x-h) 2 =4p(y-k)(y-k) 2 = 4p(x-h) OpensUp if p>0 Down if p

4 Graphing a parabola by hand Let the focus F of a parabola be (2, -3) and its directrix be y = 4. Sketch and label the focus and directrix of the parabola. directrix F

5 Graphing a parabola by hand Locate, sketch, and label the axis of the parabola What is its equation? x=2 Label and plot the vertex V of the parabola. Label it by name and coordinates. directrix F axis V(2,0.5)

6 Graphing a parabola by hand What are the focal length and width of the parabola? focal length = p = -3.5 focal width =|4(-3.5)|=14 directrix F axis V(2,0.5)

7 Use the focal width to locate, plot, and label the endpoints of a chord of the parabola that parallels the directrix. Sketch the parabola. Which direction does it open? downward What is its equation in standard form? (x – 2) 2 = 4(-3.5)(y –.5) (x – 2) 2 = -14(y –.5) V(2,0.5) directrix F axis (-5,-3) (9,-3)

8 Graphing a parabola with the calculator (x – 2) 2 = -14(y –.5) Solve for y (x – 2) 2 = -14y + 7 (x – 2) 2 – 7 = -14y

9 Graphing a parabola with the calculator (y – 3) 2 = 6(x – 4) Solve for y

10 Example Focus (-5,3) and vertex (-5,6) So p=3, opens downward (x + 5) 2 = 4(3)(y – 3) (x + 5) 2 = 12(y – 3)

11 Example Vertex (3,5) and directrix y = 7 So opens downward, p = –2 (x – 3 ) 2 = 4(-2)(y – 5) (x + 5) 2 = -8(y – 3)

12 Example Vertex (-3,3), opens right, focal width = 20 (y – 3 ) 2 = 20(x +3)
