# Hyperbolas

## Overview

Hyperbola - conic section, foci, transverse and conjugate axes, vertices, asymptotes, standard form

**TMM 002 PRECALCULUS (Revised March 21, 2017)**

**AdditionalOptional Learning Outcomes:**

2. **Geometry**: The successful Precalculus student can:

**2f**. Represent conic sections algebraically via equations of two variables and graphically by drawing curves.

Sample Tasks:

- The student can perform the process “completing the square” transforming the equation into a standard form.
- The student can draw curves representing conic sections.
- The student can solve systems of equations involving linear and quadratic functions.
- The student can parametrize conic curves.
