#### Introduction to Conic Sections

Here parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas are introduced by showing a general graph of each. By showing intersection of a plane and a cone to create the different conic sections one can see how these curves are related.

Lesson Planet

#### Introduction to Conic Sections

What do circles and parabolas have in common? An informative video focuses on the intersection of a plane with a double cone creates conic sections, including circles, parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas. Two problem videos cover...

Lesson Planet

#### Conic Sections: Intro to Circles

The equation of a circle is explored in this video by looking first at the equation of a circle with the center at the origin; then building upon that, equations of circles that are shifted off the origin.
