• Section 9.1: Intro to Conic Sections

• Distance and midpoint formula

• Recognizing Conic Sections

### Section 9.1: Introduction to Conic Sections

The St. Louis Arch is an example of sort of a parabola.

Ferris wheels are circular. They were also invented by George Ferris, who lived in Carson City for a while (and whose father was a founder of Knox College where I went to college!)

St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Washington Capitol and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir are all Ellipses.

If you are at one foci, you can hear what is happening at the other.

How many hyperbolas and circles here?

• Find the missing side of the triangle.

a2 + b2 = c2

62 + 82 = c2

• Find the missing side of the triangle.

6

a2 + b2 = c2

62 + 82 = c2

• Find the distance in RED

(-2,7)

a2 + b2 = c2

(4- -2)2 + (-1- 7)2 = c2

(4,-1)

• To find the distance between any two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), use the distance formula:

Distance =

Hmm, kind of looks like the Pythagorean Theorem!

• The midpoint of a line is halfway between the two endpoints of a line.

• To find the midpoint between (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), , use the midpoint formula:

• To say it another way:

• Find the AVERAGE of the X’s and the AVERAGE of the Y’s!

Find the distance between (-4, 2) and (-8, 4). Then find the midpoint between the points.

• If a triangle has:

• 3 sides the same:

• 2 side the same:

• No sides the same:

Then it is:

Equilateral

Isoceles

Scalene
