TI-Nspire™ CX handheld, a laser and aluminium foil, we will deduce how to graph a parabola.
We will also deduce how to obtain its equation – enabling the making of construction plans and
allowing us to create a metal structure. We will see for ourselves the importance of the focus
of a parabola by simply using a shaft of light, and we will build and discuss this project – as it
applies to STEM principles – to encourage significant learning in our students.
