This video is one in a series of videos dealing with conic sections, in mathematics. This particular video deals with hyperbolas. The teacher, Robert Ahdoot, gives an example of a hyperbola, during which he emphasizes some key points. A hyperbola is identified by an equation containing x squared and y squared, with a minus sign between them. If x is larger, the hyperbola will open to the sides, and if y is larger it will open up and down. He creates hyperbolas, demonstrating where to make asymptotes in the graph. With this video, you can learn the mathematical basics of hyperbolas.
