Conic |
Conic sections are those curves that can be created by the intersection of a double cone and a plane. They include circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas. |

Points of intersection |
Points of intersection are locations where two different equations have the same solutions. |

polar coordinates |
Polar coordinates describe locations on a grid using the polar coordinate system. The location of each point is determined by its distance from the pole and its angle with respect to the polar axis. |

pole |
The pole is the center point on a polar graph. |

quadrant |
A quadrant is one-fourth of the coordinate plane. The four quadrants are numbered using Roman Numerals I, II, III, and IV, starting in the top-right, and increasing counter-clockwise. |
