Mathematics and Computer Education, v33 n1 p27-31 Win 1999
Describes a calculator program that graphs and indicates the main features of the conic whose second-degree equation includes a nonzero xy-term. The program indicates coefficients of conic in a rotated coordinate system, type of conic, angle of rotation, coordinates of vertices of conic in the original coordinate system, and a graph of conic relative to the original coordinate plane.
