13+ Conic Section Pictures. Conic sections are among the oldest curves, and is a oldest math subject studied systematically and thoroughly. Learn about the four conic sections and their equations:

A conic section is the intersection of a plane and a cone. Straight line, circle, parabola, ellipse and hyperbola. The term conic is derived from the word cone and as the name suggests, we are going to cut the cone out in different sections.

Conic sections in polar coordinates.

Ax2 + bxy + cy2 + dx + ey + f = 0. The conic sections are the parabola, circle, ellipse, and hyperbola. By cutting the cone in different ways, you can create a shape as simple as a point or as. The goal is to sketch these however, in this section we will focus on obtaining standard form, which is often called vertex.
