A neat and organized formula handout makes the circle go round, doesn't it? Full of higher algebra topics, formulas and rules, graphs and definitions—there is a way to support everyone in Algebra II or Pre-Calculus.
Pre-Calculus has some detailed formulas involved and here is a great resource that lumps then all together for you. Broken up into rectangular, polar, and parametric sections, the conics all include formulas and graphs.
No laundry or cooking dinner here: these parent functions are all about math. Every graph you could think of from basic linear functions to the hyperbolic arccotangent function are included. With 40 parent functions, the worksheet can be...
Take a step beyond Algebra 2. Learners use the eBook to learn concepts from the typical Precalculus course. Content starts off with a short review of functions in general and moves on to the basic functions, finishing up with more...
What do a line and an ellipse have in common? Maybe zero, one, or two points! Learners consider the equation of an ellipse and a line to determine if their graphs have any shared points. They then write a system of equations, including...

Graphing conics made easy. Individuals use an interactive to graph conic sections. The app can handle circles, vertical and horizontal parabolas, ellipses, and vertical and horizontal hyperbolas.
Hyperbolas—practice thinking outside of the box. Pupils alter the end behavior box to create various graphs of hyperbolas. They determine formulas to find the distance from the origin to the foci. Using that information, scholars...
Learners explore ellipses by changing the lengths and orientation of the major and minor axis. Using the interactive, they determine the equation of the ellipse and its eccentricity. Given an equation the scholars identify the center,...
It's all about location and size. With the aid of the interactive, pupils explore the relationship between the location and size of a circle and its equation. The learners use that relationship to determine the equation of a circle given...
Map this! Help your young mathematicians draw a circular island on a map. Given specifics of the location and size of an island on a map, pupils transform a circle to meet the given requirements. They then determine the location of the...
Envision the function as the point swings. Given a point connected to another point and a line, pupils trace through an invisible graph. Learners identify the name of the given point and the line and determine the type of conic section...
Investigate ellipses through the lens of medical applications. Pupils use a medical scenario to determine the equation of an ellipse. By using the interactive, learners determine the foci and major and minor axes of the ellipse that...
They say a graph is worth a thousand points. The interactive allows users to graph a wide variety of functions and equations. Using the included keyboard or typing directly into the list, learners determine the graph of a function....
Graph A goes with equation C, but table B. The short assessment task requires class members to match graphs with their corresponding tables, equations, and verbalized rules. Pupils then provide explanations on the process they used to...

Round and round we go. Learners first complete a task on writing equations of circles. They then take part in a collaborative activity categorizing a set of equations for circles based on the radius and center.
A series of assessment tasks require learners to process information and communicate solutions. Topics include graphing parabolas, solving linear-quadratic systems, factoring polynomials, and solving polynomial equations.
Congruence and similarity apply to functions as well as polygons. Learners examine the effects of transformations on the shape of parabolas. They determine the transformation(s) that produce similar and congruent functions.

Where did conic sections get their name? The equation and graph of a parabola are developed from the definition of the conic section. Teacher examples on graphing the equation and writing an equation from the graph round out the plan.
