Ellipse Definition
Ellipse Definition
This app allows you to experiment with the definition of an ellipse as the set of points in which the sum of the distances from two fixed points is a constant. (G-GPE 3)

Tags: Geometry, Common-Core, conic-sections, ellipse

Hyperbola Definition
Hyperbola Definition
This app allows you to experiment with the definition of a hyperbola as the set of points in which the difference of the distances from two fixed points is a constant. (G-GPE 3)

Tags: Geometry, Common-Core, conic-sections, hyperbola

Alternate Ellipse Construction
Alternate Ellipse Construction
This app allows you to experiment with an alternate construction of an ellipse.  The tracing of the perpendicular bisector of the segment between a point on a circle and a point in the circle create an elliptical locus. (G-GPE 3)

Tags: Geometry, Common-Core, conic-sections, ellipse, bisector, perpendicular, circle

Alternate Hyperbola Construction
Alternate Hyperbola Construction
This app allows you to experiment with an alternate construction of a hyperbola.  The tracing of the perpendicular bisector of the segment between a point on a circle and a point outside the circle create a hyperbolic locus. (G-GPE 3)

This app allows you to practice writing the equation of a circle given a graph. (G-GPE 1)

Tags: Geometry, Common-Core, conic-sections, circle, equation

Ellipse Equations
Ellipse Equations
This app allows you to practice writing the equation of an ellipse (horizontal and vertical) given a graph. (G-GPE 3)

Tags: Geometry, Common-Core, conic-sections, ellipse, equation
