Using technology

       Entry task & exit slip

       matrices practice

       Introduction to systems of equations, this uses quadratics given 3 coordinate points find the function. 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.


The lesson I use is about the St. Louis Arch. The following are a couple of 4 minute videos to get the students excited then the lesson plan and instruction materials are linked as a pdf.

       The St. Louis Arch is the Gateway to the west video (4 minutes)

       The building of the St. Louis Arch photo collage (4 minutes)
