Directions: Move points A, B, and C to determine a parabolic function.

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

What happens if points A, B, and C are colinear?

Under what conditions does the parabola not exist? Why?
