This is another video in the Year 9 Quadratics series. In this video I look at what a parabola is (which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise as I have been relating all of the prior work to the parabola!). We look at what a parabola looks like, the axis of symmetry, roots of the parabola (otherwise known as the x-axis intercepts) and the general shape and form.
There are lots of worked examples and I might have thrown in some humour there too. This video, like my others, is explained in an easy to understand way to help everyone do well at Mathematics.
