## Chapter 8: Conic Sections and Rational FunctionsIn this chapter students will: - use the distance formula to find the distance between two points on a plane and to solve distance and rate problems
- learn about conic sections?circles, ellipses, parabolas, and hyperbolas?which are created by intersecting a plane and a cone
- investigate the properties of conic sections
- write the equations of conic sections
- study rational functions and learn special properties of their graphs
- add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational expressions
