Parabolas, Ellipses, and Hyperbolas
Lecture no. 27 from the course: Understanding Calculus II: Problems, Solutions, and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Review parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas, focusing on how calculus deepens our understanding of these shapes. First, look at parabolas and arc length computation. Then turn to ellipses, their formulas, and the concept of eccentricity. Next, examine hyperbolas. End by looking ahead to parametric equations.
