The Parabola

The Parabola:

If an object is thrown into the air, the path that the object forms is a special curve called a parabola. You can construct a parabola by plotting the path of all points that are the same distance from a fixded line called a Directrix and a fixed point called the focus. Using 3D models, we explain the parabola.

Also in the tutorial we will:
