Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations 
DescriptionThe relationship between slope and grade in cycling is explored. Go on a tour of Italy through the mountains of Tuscany and apply students' understanding of slope. 

Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 1: Introduction 
DescriptionScientists 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. In the process students will learn the difference between a quadratic relation and a quadratic function. 

Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 2: Parabolic Paths 
DescriptionThe liftoff and preorbital 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. A Video Transcript is available for this tutorial. 

Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 3: Circular Paths 
DescriptionThe path of a rocket orbiting the Earth can be modeled with the equation of a circle. Students explore the quadratic relation and the parametric equations that can be used to model the path of a spacecraft orbiting Earth. A Video Transcript is available for this tutorial. 

Closed Captioned Video: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 4: Elliptical Paths 
DescriptionThe planets orbiting the sun follow elliptical paths. In fact, the trajectory of a spacecraft traveling to Mars would also be elliptical. Students explore these various ellipses. A Video Transcript is available for this tutorial.
