Connecting Parabolas and Quadratic Functions

Geometer’s Sketchpad file for the three-part activity allowing students to connect parabolas of the form (x-h)^2=4p(y-k), to the general equation of quadratic functions, y=ax^2+bx+c. Created by Dr. David Glassmeyer, Kennesaw State University for distribution of the article "Connecting Parabolas and Quadratic Functions" by Wendy Sanchez and David Glassmeyer.
