Identifying and Graphing Conic Sections - Stations Activity (Circles, Ellipses, Hyperbolas, and Parabolas)
In this activity, students will practice identifying conic sections, convert to standard form, and identify all key characteristics. This includes circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas. All conics are given in general conic form, so students must cover to standard form by completing the square. Key characteristics include center, radius, vertices, covertices, asymptotes, vertex, directrix, and focus.
The only prep work required is to print the 8 stations cards, post around the room, and copy enough worksheets for students to take along with them.
This stations could also be used as task cards for students to complete in their seats.
This activity works very well in conjunction with my Algebra 2 Conic Sections Unit.
