VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations |
In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore the following scenario: 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. In the process students will learn the difference between a quadratic relation and a quadratic function. This video includes a Video Transcript: https://www.media4math.com/library/video-transcript-algebra-applications-functions-and-relations This video includes a Teacher's Guide: https://www.media4math.com/library/algebra-applications-teachers-guide-functions-and-relations |

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. This video includes a video transcript: https://www.media4math.com/library/video-transcript-algebra-applications-functions-and-relations-segment-2-parabolic-paths A Promethean Flipchart is available for this video: https://www.media4math.com/library/promethean-flipchart-algebra-applications-space-travel-1 |

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 3: Circular Paths. |
The 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.

VIDEO: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations, Segment 4: Elliptical Paths. |
The 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.

VIDEO: Algebra Nspirations: Functions and Relations |
Functions are relationships between quantities that change. Written and hosted by internationally acclaimed math educator Dr. Monica Neagoy, this video explores the definition of a function, its vocabulary and notations, and distinguishes the concept of function from a general relation. Multiple representations of functions are provided using the TI-Nspire, while dynamic visuals and scenarios put them into real-world contexts. Concepts explored: functions, relations, equations, quadratic functions, linear functions, multiple representations.
