Conic Sections - Hyperbolas

Videos, worksheets, games and acivities to help Algebra 1I students learn about hyperbola conic sections.



The Hyperbola :
A hyperbola is a type of conic section that is formed by intersecting a cone with a plane, resulting in two parabolic shaped pieces that open either up and down or right and left. Similar to a parabola, the hyperbola pieces have vertices and are asymptotic. The hyperbola is the least common of the conic sections.
