### iPOD Video (23) Conic Sections Part 1
IPOD VIDEO: In this unit we study the conic sections. These are the curves obtained when a cone is cut by a plane. We find the equations of one of these curves, the parabola, by using an alternative description in terms of points whose distances from a fixed point and a fixed line are equal. We also find the equation of a tangent to a parabola using techniques from calculus, and we use this to prove the reflective property of the parabola.

IPOD VIDEO: In this unit we find the equation of a straight line, when we are given some information about the line. The information could be the value of its gradient, together with the co-ordinates of a point on the line. Alternatively, the information might be the co-ordinates of two different points on the line. There are several different ways of expressing the final equation, and some are more general than others.

Polar co-ordinates
The (x, y) co-ordinates of a point in the plane are called its Cartesian co-ordinates. But there is another way to specify the position of a point, and that is to use polar co-ordinates (r, theta). In this unit we explain how to convert from Cartesian co-ordinates to polar co-ordinates, and back again. Properties of straight line segments
