## Conic Sections in Coordinate Geometry - Chapter Summary

Our engaging chapter introduces you to the concept of a parabola, the focus and directrix of a parabola and some examples of both. These lessons cover the processes of deciphering the equation for an ellipse from the foci and graphing an ellipse using algebra.

You'll also learn how to graph a hyperbola using the standard equation to locate the focus points, vertices and center point. Once you finish this chapter, you should be ready to:

• Identify several equations used for the parabola
• Define ellipse and hyperbola
• Decipher information about an ellipse from its equation
• Write the standard form equation of a hyperbola
• Use formulas to identify a conic section

Test your knowledge of this subject by taking the multiple-choice lesson quizzes and chapter test ahead of a big exam or project.
