• Unit 10: Introduction to Conic Sections

    Conic sections are made by taking particular slices of a cone. The slices we will study include ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas. You will have studied parabolas in the context of functions previously in the course, but these parabolas are different because they are not functions. Read on to learn more!

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 2 hours.
