Lesson 9-1: Midpoint & Distance Formulas. The Midpoint Formula works exactly the same way. If you need to find the point that is exactly halfway between two given points, just average the x-values and the y-values. The distance formula is derived from the Pythagorean theorem. To find the distance between two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), all that you need to do is use the coordinates of these ordered pairs and apply the formula

Lesson 9-2: Parabolas.a symmetrical open plane curve formed by the intersection of a cone with a plane parallel to its side. The path of a projectile under the influence of gravity ideally follows a curve of this shape.

Lesson 9-3: Circles. The center-radius form of the circle equation is in the format (x – h)^2 + (y – k)^2 = r^2, with the center being at the point (h, k) and the radius being "r".
