What Is a Hyperbola Grapher?

A hyperbola grapher is an online resource or calculator that graphs the hyperbola from the given function. Online hyperbola graphers allow students to enter the values of x, y, a and b to generate the graph. Students do not have to graph the hyperbola themselves.

Hyperbolas are discussed in conics. A hyperbola has two lines called branches that mirror one another on a graph. Hyperbolas have two foci and two vertices. The foci are further away from the center of the hyperbola than the vertices. A hyperbola is centered on a point, and the closest points on the branches to the center are the vertices. Hyperbolas may be curved or appear nearly straight depending on their eccentricity.
