In Conic Sections, Dr. Eaton bridges the gap between all the previous lessons to show where they originate with double cone sections. After standard form, she moves into how to identify conic sections from equations before you get to practice four additional problems on your own.
Know how to put an equation in standard form by completing the square. Be able to identify which conic section is the graph of the equation.
Know how to analyze a general equation of degree 2 to determine which conic section is the graph of the equation.
