Math 116 - Chapter 8 Study Guide

  1. Identify the conic section or degenerate case. Choices are no graph, point, line, parallel lines, intersecting lines, parabola, circle, ellipse, and hyperbola. Nine parts.
  2. Sketch the graph of the conic section. The conic is in standard form.
  3. Find the equation of the parabola with vertex at the origin. Look at problems 8.1.23-30.
  4. Find the equation of the ellipse with center at the origin. Look at problems 8.1.57-60.
  5. Find the equation of the hyperbola with center at the origin. Look at problems 8.1.79-82.
  6. Find the vertex, focus, and directrix of the parabola. Do not graph. Look at problems 8.2.11-14.
  7. Find the center, foci, and vertices of the ellipse. Do not graph. Look at problems 8.2.37-40.
  8. Find the center, foci, and vertices of the hyperbola. Also give the equations of the asymptotes. Do not graph. Look at problems 8.2.59-62.
  9. Identify the conic section and write the equation based on the graph. If a parabola, give the focal length; if an ellipse, give the center; if a hyperbola, give the center. Look at problems 8.1.33-36, 53-56, 85-86; 8.2.23-26, 45-48, 71-74.
  10. Same instructions as #9.
  11. Same instructions as #9.
  12. Complete the square to put a conic into standard form. Identify the type of conic, coordinates of the center (vertex for a parabola), and the change in x and change in y (for a hyperbola or ellipse) or focal length (for a parabola). Sketch the graph of the conic. Look at problems 8.2.41-44, 63-68.
  13. Sketch the graph of the conic section. The conic is in standard form. Identify the type of conic, coordinates of the center (vertex for a parbola), and the change in x and change in y (for a hyperbola or ellipse) or focal length (for a parabola). Look at problems 8.2.37-40, 59-62.
  14. Use your calculator to sketch the graph of the parametric equations. Indicate the direction of increasing t. Be aware of how to restrict the graph on the calculator to a certain interval for t. Look at problems 8.3.27-30.
  15. Eliminate the parameter and solve for y. Then sketch the graph. Indicate the direction of increasing t. Be sure to include any restrictions that are necessary. Two parts. Look at problems 8.3.11-26.
