Families of Conics Graph the conics with and on a common screen. How does the value of affect the shape of the curve
The conics with and on a common screen and determine how value of affects the shape of curve.
The steps written below describe how the graph of the Families of Conics is obtained.
Step 1: Turn on the graphing calculator.
Step 2:Press .
Using arrow buttons to navigate to and to select this option. This enables graphing in polar coordinates.
If is not selected then using arrow buttons navigate to and to select radian mode.
Step 3: Press and enter the equation of the conic for .
Press to plot the conic.
The graph might appear too small or may not fit the whole screen depending on the setting for max and min values for -axis and -axis. To adjust these setting press .
Don’t adjust the settings to fit the graph to the calculator screen as we expect conic to grow wider with increasing . We can adjust the settings after we have finished plotting the conics for all given values of .
Step 4: Press and enter the equation of conic for and press .
