Standard equation of ellipse
Ax²+By²+Cx+Dy+E=0
General equation for ellipse
largest denominator is "Y"
An ellipse is vertical if
largest denominator is"X"
An ellipse is horizontal if
Minor Axis
The shorter axis on an ellipse with co vertices
Major Axis

x²/a²-y²/b²=1
Equation of hyperbola with center at (0,0)
(x-h)²/a²-(y-k)²/b²=1
standard equation of a hyperbola
ax²-by²+cx+dy+e=0
general equation of a hyperbola
horizontally
hyperbola - if x² is positive then hyperbola opens
vertically
hyperbola - if y² is positive then hyperbola opens
hyperbola xy=k means
hyperbola does not intersect x or y axis
Circle
r= asin(theta)
Ellipse
Equation adds x²/a² and y²/b²=1
Hyperbola
Equation subtracts x²/a and y²/b=1; x and y coefficients have different signs.
Parabola
the graph of a quadratic function
y-y₁=m(x-x₁)
Point-Slope form
Conic Sections
Curves found by cutting a cone with a plane.
vertex
The point where two sides meet. (Shared end points of the line segments of a polygon.)
Center
Each regular polygon has a center because it can be inscribed in a circle.
Focus (Foci - plural)
One of two fixed points at the centers of an ellipse.
Asymptote
An imaginary line on a graph that acts as a boundary line.
Conic Section
A curve formed by the intersection of a plane and a double cone resulting in a circle, ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola.
