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!

    Couldn't get the applets to work on the website, but used the worksheet instead. LOVED IT!

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