# Chapter 10: Conic Sections

Difficulty Level:

**At Grade**Created by: CK-12

## Introduction

**Conic sections** are four shapes; parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas, created from the intersection of a plane with a cone or two cones.

In this chapter, we will study these four conic sections and place them in the \begin{align*}x-y\end{align*} plane. For each shape, we will analyze the parts, find the equation and graph. Lastly, we will introduce the general conic section equation and solve systems with conics and lines.
