Introduction to Conics - The Ellipse

High schoolers identify and graph ellipses. After a teacher led discussion on shapes created when intersected by a plane and the use of conic sections, students create a graphic organizer containing the information. A United Streaming video is shown to explore conic sections. Using a string and oak tag, students participate in activities to create an ellipse. They discuss properties and formulas for the created ellipses.
