Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 1: Introduction
Scientists use conic sections to map the trajectories of spacecraft in flight. The setting for this episode is a planned future flight to Mars. As the ship travels from Earth to Mars, parabolic, circular, and elliptical paths are explored. |
Applications of Functions and Relations, Conic Sections, Relations and Functions | |

## Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, 2 |
Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 2: Parabolic Paths
The liftoff and pre-orbital path of the rock is described by a parabola. Students explore the properties of parabolas from the standpoint of the parametric equations that describe the horizontal and vertical directions of motion for the rocket. |
