A series of free, online video lessons with examples and solutions to help Algebra
students learn about circles conic sections.

A circle is a set of points (x, y) which are a fixed distance r, the radius, away from a fixed point (h, k), the center.

The equation of the circle in standard form is

(x - h)

If a circle is given in general form then we must complete the square on the x and y parts of the equation to rewrite it in standard form.

Conic Sections: The Circle

In this video, you will learn how to identify the equation of a circle, how to write the standard form of a circle from the general form and how to graph a circle.
