Conic Section Formulas :
We can easily identify a conic section by its formula. Conic section formulas have different identifiers. For example, a vertical parabola has a squared "x" term and single "y" term while a horizontal parabola has a single "x" term and a "y" squared term. An equation for a circle has a squared "x" term, a squared "y" term and identical coefficients.
How to identify a conic section by its formula.
This video explains how to determine if a given equation in general form is a circle, ellipse, parabola, or hyperbola.



Graphing The Conics
Introduction The video introduces the four conic sections, circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas and shows the standard form of their equations. Strong emphasis is placed on the effect of h and k values to the position of these conic sections. The graphing calculator is used in the video to check the standard form equations for the different conics.
