Talking Parabolas

Delaney and I started talking about parabolas yesterday for some reason. I think I asked him a question about math and somehow he told me he’s studied them and he knew what a graph of one looked like. So I asked him about y=x^3. He knew that one as well.


Today someone posted a note about Microsoft Math 4.0 and it being available with graphing capabilities. I grabbed it in the background while doing other stuff and installed it.



I ran a few short graphs and thought it was cool. Here’s the first one I did, remembering my talk with Delaney.


Gotta love a calculator that asks for a 1GHz processor as the recommended speed.
