`1 Name:_______________________ Date assigned:______________ Band:________Precalculus | Packer Collegiate Institute Assessment on Conics Basics (Polar)
Remember to get full credit, you need to show all work, clearly and neatly.

Remember, this isn’t
just about you getting the answer, but you
showing someone else
how you got the answer.
You may not use a calculator on this assessment.
These are various conic sections graphed with either
11 cos


or

11 sin

These aregraphs:A B C DThese aregraphs:E F G HThese aregraphs:I J K L
1. For conic section
B
, (a) which equation was used (circle one):
11 cos


or

11 sin

(b) write down a possible
value:
(c) write down the
name
of the conic section: _________________2. For conic section
E
, (a) which equation was used (circle one):
11 cos


or

11 sin

(b) write down a possible
value:
(c) write down the
name
of the conic section: _________________3. For conic section
K
, (a) which equation was used (circle one):
11 cos


or

11 sin

(b) write down a possible
value:
(c) write down the
name
of the conic section: _________________

`2 4. How close does
1213sin

get to the origin? At what angle(s) does this happen? Explain your reasoning clearly.5. How far does
11 cos

get from the origin? At what angle(s) does this happen? Explain your reasoning clearly.6. It turns out that
11 2cos

gets infinitely far away from the origin at two different angles. Find these angles. Youneed to show your work, but you do not need any explanation.

`3 7. Convert
21 cos

to a rectangular equation. If it is easily put into a standard form of something we know andlove, do that!8. Rewrite the following equations in
standard polar form
(meaning they should look like
11 cos
r a


or

11 sin
r a

). Then identify the type of conic section the equation is.
(a)
93 6sin

Type of Conic Section:(b)
22 5cos

Type of Conic Section:(c)
31 9cos

Type of Conic Section:(d)
32 sin

Type of Conic Section:
