Welcome to xsquared.wikispaces.com!

The purpose of this wiki is to collect, analyze, and share information about parabolas and quadratics from around the world. This wiki was created for and authored by members of Mrs. Shutters' Algebra 1 class at Roycemore School.

Would you like to participate in this wiki? Please send an email to eshutters@roycemoreschool.org with your name, email address, and how you'd like to participate. We would love to hear about the parabolas in your world!

You can see more information about our Algebra 1 class on our class Moodle site.

Chapter 12 Project

It's time for the Chapter 12 Project! We are completing a great big parabola project to show off what we've learned. Each student has chosen a different parabola to analyze. Click here for details.

(first wiki assignment)

Who, what, when, where, and why are Parabolas?

... and why do we care?

Your first wiki assignment is to contribute to (edit) one or more of the following pages by clicking EDIT at the top right of the page. You must be logged in. Then, post or respond to at least one discussion question on a different page than the one you edited. You can get to discussion posts by clicking the Pushpin tab at the top right of the page. If you have information about parabolas that does not pertain to one of these topics, you can create a new page by clicking the plus sign next to Pages and Files at the top of the screen.
