This lesson involves exploring the curves that result from varying the defining conditions of an ellipse.
Focus/Directrix Definition of Conics
This lesson involves observing and describing relationships between the focus and the directrix of each conic: parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas.
Introduction to Conic Sections
This lesson involves observing how each of the conic sections is formed and connecting the locus definition of a parabola with the vertex form of a parabola.
This lesson involves exploration of polar equations for conic sections.
Reflective Property of Conics
This lesson involves investigating the properties of basic reflective principles of conics.
