## Conic Sections

##### for Macintosh

Conic Sections is a collection of interactive mathematical visualizations for exploring circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas. It builds them from explicit equations, geometric constructions and parametric equations in rectangular and polar coordinates.
