In this unit you will
learn how to construct different conic sections (the parabola, the
hyperbola and the ellipse) geometrically using basic geometric
elements such as segments, their midpoints, perpendicular lines
and circles.
You will be able to
draw these shapes in the windows as if you were drawing on a sheet of
paper, the only difference being that the computer will save you
having to draw several straight lines by hand.
