This set of games asks students to find the correct equation of the parabola in order to hit the pig! Three set of coordinates are given and students are required to calculate the equation of the parabola. They will be required to understand the equation of a quadratic, in particular the form y=a(x  p)(x  q) would be helpful. Great fun!

This webbased set of quadratic puzzles is both fun and really requires students to think about the algebra underlying quadratic curves. I enjoyed it a lot.
