## 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 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.
