  3. 6. Aim: What is a parabola? Do Now:
  4. 7. <ul><li>The line segment through the focus of a parabola and perpendicular to the axis of symmetry is called the latus rectum . </li></ul><ul><li>The vertex is always halfway between the focus and the directrix, and the parabola always curves away from the directrix. </li></ul>
