185Geometric Definition of a ParabolaA parabola is a locus* of points equidistant from a fixed point, the focus, and a fixed line, the directrix. *locusis just a fancy word for set. Every parabola is symmetric with respect to a line through the focus and perpendicular to the directrix. The vertex of the parabola is the "turning point" and is on the axis of symmetry.

188Parabolas can open up or down (vertical parabolas), OR left or right (horizontal parabolas). (Horizontal parabolas are not functions.)Parabolas that open left or right have the general equationand the vertex form ofwhere (h,k) is the vertex.Parabolas
