# Projective Conics:

These pages were developed by Mathew
Frank, a student in the 1995 Summer
Institute held at the Geometry Center. Mathew was interested in
conics and projective geometry, and he developed some programs to
illustrate a classical result called Pascal's theorem.
As part of his project, Mathew wrote the following pages describing
the theorem and some related material, as well as the interactive
application available from the button below:

## Conics and Hexagons

Note: There are no subscripts or superscripts in these pages.
Instead, superscripts are denoted by "^", so "*x* squared" is written
"*x*^2". Similarly, subscripts are indicated by "_", so
"*x* sub 1" is written "*x*_1". The notation *AB* will
refer to the line connecting points *A* and *B*, and
*AB.CD* will refer to the point of intersection of lines
*AB* and *CD*.
