**It all depends on how you slice it!**• Start with a cone:**IF we slice the cone, parallel to the base, what do we get?**A Circle!**IF we slice the cone at an angle, what do we get now?**An Ellipse!**IF we just take a slice from the lateral face of the cone,**what do we get? A Parabola!**Finally, let’s take a slice from the lateral face,**perpendicular to the base A Hyperbola!**These shapes are called Conic Sections. We can use Algebra**to describe the equations and graphs of these shapes.
