This is a great worksheet that helps students practice the basics of ellipses. All ellipses are given in standard form, so students do not have to complete the square. They are required to find the center, major axis length, minor axis length, coordinates of the vertices, and graph the ellipses.
It is great as a homework assignment if you are not going into completing the square. It is also great as an introductory assignment if you are going to complete the square the next day.
