    I ♥ Parabola poster
    PARABOLA Bridges are physical manifestations of a parabola. The height-versus time graph of falling objects at or near the center of the earth can be modeled by a parabola as well. It is usually the first nonlinear curve that students study in algebra. A parabola can be defined as the locus of points equidistant from a point (called the focus) and a line (called the directrix). The parabola with vertex at the origin and opening upward has the equation 4py x2, where is a constant representing the distance from the focus to the vertex (or the vertex to the directrix).
