*Adopted: 2016*

### BIG IDEAS

### UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

· Matrices can be used to represent transformations of figures in the plane.

· A conic section is a figure formed by the intersection of a plane with a right circular cone. Conic sections include the parabola, circle, ellipse, and hyperbola.

### ESSENTIALS
