Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Functions and Relations

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: 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.
