1. Using the “Circle with Center and Radius” to construct a circle with a center at (0,0) and a radius of 1.
2. Make note of the equation in the algebra window under conic.
3. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for different radii with the same center of (0,0).
Q1. Describe the change in the equation as the radius changes.
Q2. What is the standard form of the equation of a circle at the origin?
