       Introduction to quadratics. Many videos can be used to wet the appetite of students, some of which are listed here:

       Basketball arcade game (see the curve generated by the basketball)
       Jem melt rock with a parabolic mirror(AWESOME!)
       google images of parabolic antennas, mirrors, etc.
