Writing Equations of Conic Sections Task Cards
These 32 task cards review writing equations of conic sections, including: circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas. Cards are organized as follows:
• Cards 1-8: Writing Equations of Circles given a graph, center/radius, center/point on circle, two endpoints of a diameter
• Cards 9-16: Writing Equations of Ellipses given a graph, vertices/covertices, vertices/foci, covertices/foci
• Cards 17-24: Writing Equations of Hyperbolas given a graph, vertices/covertices, vertices/foci, covertices/foci
• Cards 15-32: Writing Equations of Parabolas given a graph, vertex/focus, vertex/directrix, focus/directrix
Break the cards up and use them as you teach the conics, or use as a cumulative review at the end of a unit.
Students can check their answers by scanning the QR code on each card. Connection to the internet is not required to scan the code, however, a QR scanner app is required on the device. There are several free apps available to download. Cards without QR codes also included should you wish not to use them.
This activity works very well in conjunction with my Algebra 2 Conic Sections Unit.

This purchase includes a license for one teacher only
for personal use in their classroom. Licenses are non-transferable
, meaning they can not be passed from one teacher to another. No part of this resource is to be shared with colleagues or used by an entire grade level, school, or district without purchasing the proper number of licenses. If you are a coach, principal, or district interested in transferable licenses to accommodate yearly staff changes, please contact me for a quote at email@example.com.
This resource may not be uploaded to the internet in any form, including classroom/personal websites or network drives, unless the site is password protected and can only be accessed by students.
