In this paper we outline the procedure implemented in order to introduce translations of a parabola to tenth grade algebra students. Advantages in applying an interdisciplinary approach with physics are discussed. Promoting an investigative approach in teaching sciences is presented as an indivisible part of building a sense of scientific community in the classroom. The added value of the learning experience created is illustrated through differentiated participation and higher order thinking manifestations analysed and categorised so as to highlight changes in classroom practice.
