Caden & Conics!
Check out these examples of conic sections on baby Caden!
Circle- all points are the same distance from the center
Ellipse- defined by two special points called foci
Parabola- a curve where any point is at an equal distance from a fixed point and a fixed straight line
Hyperbola- a curve where the distances of any point from a fixed point and a fixed straight line are always in the same ratio
