Vectors: Parabola from Three Points (Focus and Directrix)

Step-by-step construction using vector algebra. Rotates freely in the plane. The parabola and tangent line equations are given from scalar parameters. Three points in space determine a plane: the equation is 3-space ready. Used In: Parabola in 3-space, arbitrary orientation: [url]http://www.geogebratube.org/student/m32476[/url] Bezier Parabola: [url]http://www.geogebratube.org/material/show/id/37814[/url] _____ These are self-study materials. Let me know how I can make them more useful to you.
