# Hyperbolas: Conic Sections

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

### What Is A Hyperbola?

A hyperbola is the set of all points (x, y) for which the absolute value of the differences between the distances from two distinct fixed points called foci is constant.

#### Conic Sections: The Hyperbola (Part 1 Of 2)

This video defines a hyperbola and explains how to graph a hyperbola given in standard form.

#### Conic Sections: The Hyperbola (Part 2 Of 2)

This video explains how to graph a hyperbola in general form.

#### Hyperbolas - Conic Sections

A complete hyperbola example. Learn how to solve and graph an hyperbola.

Graphing a transformed hyperbola combines the skills of graphing hyperbolas and graphing transformations. With hyperbola graphs, we use the formula a2 + b2 = c2 to determine the foci and y = + or - (a/b)x to determine the asymptotes. When transforming hyperbola graphs, we find the center of the graph and then graph accordingly.
