I dig it that Educator is being advertised on my blog page. Educator said, learn like you are going to live forever, it seems somebody there knows who I am. 1 answerLast reply by: Dr Carleen EatonSun Jan 27, 2013 1:01 PMPost by Monis Mirza on January 26 at 05:24:07 PMhow do you find the maximum and minimum of a parabola using the equation?i have a test on this on monday and i really need the answer! 1 answerLast reply by: Dr Carleen EatonThu May 16, 2013 11:10 PMPost by Saki Amagai on May 16 at 03:24:30 PMI don't know why but.. I'm having trouble watching this entire conic section due to technical issues. I don't have any problem for the other ones. It's just this section that I get "network failure". I really need to watch this... Can you please check if there's nothing wrong with the server? Thank you.

### Parabolas

• Understand the geometric significance of the sign of the coefficient of the squared term in the equation of a parabola.
• Use the axis of symmetry to help you graph a parabola.
• Know the standard formula for a parabola.
• Review how to complete the square.
• If the coefficient of the squared term is not 1, then before completing the square, you must first factor this coefficient out of both the squared term and the linear term.
