Introduction to Conics

Just exactly where does the name conic come from? This brief hands-on exploration explains it all. Have your class cut cones to create their own conics, then assess their understanding with a few identification problems. Consider making the activity more open-ended by hiding the shape name and having students come up with them on their own. Beautiful graphics in this activity!
