The foci of an ellipse are explored in this video. First, foci are shown as the two points on the major axis such that the sum of the distance from a point on the ellipse and the foci points is the same as the distance from any point on...
In this video, Sal defines the vertex and the foci of a hyperbola, and shows how to locate both. By comparing the hyperbola to an ellipse throughout the video, the listener sees the similarities between these two conic sections. This...
The equation of a circle is explored in this video by looking first at the equation of a circle with the center at the origin; then building upon that, equations of circles that are shifted off the origin.

#### Standard Form of Conics

Looking forÂ a complete go-to guide for the standard form of conics? This five-page packet does a nice job of connecting conics to prior knowledge of functions and transformations. Adapt the resourceÂ as Algebra II lesson plan notes, or...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Parametric Equations 3

Following his intuitive manner, Sal considers another set of parametric equations. This time, he looks at two equations using trigonometric functions and using one of the basic trigonometric identities, removes the parameter from the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Introduction to Conic Sections

Here parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas are introduced by showing a general graph of each. By showing intersection of a plane and a cone to create the different conic sections one can see how these curves are related.

#### Foci of an Ellipse

The foci of an ellipse are explored in this video. First, foci are shown as the two points on the major axis such that the sum of the distance from a point on the ellipse and the foci points is the same as the distance from any point on...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Foci of a Hyperbola

In this video, Sal defines the vertex and the foci of a hyperbola, and shows how to locate both. By comparing the hyperbola to an ellipse throughout the video, the listener sees the similarities between these two conic sections. This...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Conic Sections: Intro to Circles

The equation of a circle is explored in this video by looking first at the equation of a circle with the center at the origin; then building upon that, equations of circles that are shifted off the origin.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Conic Sections: Hyperbolas 3

Continuing with the study of graphing hyperbolas, Sal shows an example of graphing a parabola that is centered at a point off the origin. By looking at the equation, first without shifting it, he helps listeners develop an intuitive...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Conic Sections: Hyperbolas 2

Here is an example in this video of graphing a hyperbola centered at the origin. First, Sal shows solving for the equations of the asymptotes and then shows how to determine the direction of the hyperbola. He takes the approach of not...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Proof: Hyperbola Foci

In a video that is quite involved, algebraically, Sal proves that the distance of the foci from the center of a hyperbola is the square root of a2+b2. Since the algebra shown here is challenging, this video might be appropriate as an...
