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 determine the equation of a general hyperbola centered at the origin.
