Graphing Conic Sections

Syllabus: AQA| CCEA| EDEXCEL| MEI| OCR| WJECTopic: Curve SketchingExamination: Further MathsCalculator: Casio FX-CG20Module: FP2

The built-in CONICS tool provides the ideal platform to explore the equations of conic sections in Cartesian, polar and parametric forms. You can quickly identify specific points such as the centre and focus as well as other measures such as asymptotes and eccentricity.

You can use the MODIFY tool to quickly see the effect that changes of variables make to the families of curves.
