Student[Precalculus][ConicsTutor] - illustrates graphs and information of conic sections

Calling Sequence

ConicsTutor()

ConicsTutor(f)

Parameters

f

-

(optional) input equation of the conic section in cartesian xy-coordinates or polar rt-coordinates

Description

• 

The ConicsTutor command launches a tutor interface that illustrates the graph and provides information about the related conic section.

• 

The equation f can be one of the following forms:

– 

expr1=expr2 where expr1 and expr2 are of degree at most 2, in terms of x and y.

– 

expr where expr is of degree at most 2 in terms of x and y.

– 

r=gt where gt is the polar form of an equation for a conic section, in terms of the variable t.

– 

gt where gt is the polar form of an equation for a conic section, in terms of the variable t.

– 

Note that gt can either be a constant or be in the form ab+cdt , where a, b, and c are real numbers, and d is the sine or cosine function.

• 

If f is not specified, ConicsTutor uses a default function.
