Lesson 7-5: Hyperbolas

Objective: The student will be able to write equations of hyperbolas and graph hyperbolas having certain properties.

Virginia Mathematics SOL: A2.18
The student will identify conic sections (circle, ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola) from his/her equations. Given the equations in the (h,k) form, the student will sketch graphs of conic sections, using transformations.

You can rotate the figure by moving point G on the left circle, and you can change the section by moving points A and B.
