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

#### 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.
