In class we reviewed various forms of conics (ellipses, hyperbola, parabola) and learned about the general form of a quadratic

Ax^2 + bxy + Cy^2 + Dx + Ey + F = 0

Today's problems ask students to convert between this general form and the standard form of various other conic sections.

Assignment: 9.5 on p. 531: 1-8, 10, 13-16
