Introduction to Conic Sections :
By definition, a conic section is a curve obtained by intersecting a cone with a plane. In Algebra II, we work with four main types of conic sections: circles, parabolas, ellipses and hyperbolas. Each of these conic sections has different characteristics and formulas that help us solve various types of problems.

This video shows how you can generate a circle, ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola by intersecting a cone with a plan. It is the first of several videos on the conic sections.
