#### AP Calculus AB

Prepare high school mathematicians for the AP Calculus AB exam with a collection of 38 videos that can be used to introduce the topics or as a review. The videos focus on two processes; differentiating a function and integrating a...

Khan Academy

#### 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.

Curated OER

#### Conic Sections: Hyperbolas 3

Continuing with the study of graphing hyperbolas, Sal shows an example of graphing a parabola that is centered at a point off the origin. By looking at the equation, first without shifting it, he helps listeners develop an intuitive...

Curated OER

#### Conic Sections: Hyperbolas 2

Here is an example in this video of graphing a hyperbola centered at the origin. First, Sal shows solving for the equations of the asymptotes and then shows how to determine the direction of the hyperbola. He takes the approach of not...

Curated OER

#### Conic Identification 3

This is the last of three well-done videos on identifying and graphing conic sections from an equation. Here, Sal shows graphing a circle, not centered at the origin, and a parabola that opens downward.

Curated OER

#### 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.

Curated OER

#### Conic Sections: Intro to Hyperbolas

In this video, Sal starts with the equation of a hyperbola by first comparing it to the equation of the circle, and ellipse. He then shows how to find the equation of the asymptotes by solving for y. He also shows a few intuitive ways to...

Khan Academy

#### Conic Sections: Intro to Circles

This video explores the equation of a circle by first looking at the equation of a circle with the center at the origin and then building upon that, equations of circles that are shifted off the origin.

Curated OER

#### Parametric Equations 3

Following his intuitive manner, Sal considers another set of parametric equations. This time, he looks at two equations using trigonometric functions and using one of the basic trigonometric identities, removes the parameter from the...
