Description:

<p>Students model the locus of points at equal distance between a point (focus) and a line (directrix). <br/>They construct a parabola and understand this geometric definition of the curve. <br/>They use algebraic techniques to derive the analytic equation of the parabola.</p><p>Teacher and Student versions of full lesson from engageNY</p>
