It was effective that you were able to show all 4 types in the beginning and at the end. It is a good cheat sheet for students to see all four and easily compare them. The definition was short and concise eliminating much of the confusion with conic sections. The graphics of a plane and the cone was effective. I like how you also placed the graphs below to provide additional interest and questions for students to delve deeper into the mathematics.

Mr Ramirez presents really cool pictures that demonstrate the concept of conic sections very well. I like that the video is kept simple by looking at these four types and not cramming too much information into one video. Though, it might have been nice to see an example of the graph on a traditional 2D graph as well.

I really like that this video shows the pictures of each of the conic sections. When the video zooms and the pictures get stretched, the shapes of the conic sections were hard to visualize and understand because they were skewed. If this was fixed, the video would be much easier to follow. Otherwise, this video is quite helpful.
