Our knowledge of conic sections dates back to ancient Greece. Looking
around us, there are so many examples of conic sections in everyday
life. For example ellipses, which have two foci, have a similar
reflecting property that is exploited in a medical procedure called
lithotripsy. Patients with kidney stones and gallstones are positioned
in a tank shaped like half an ellipse so that the stones are at one
focus. Your duty this week is to research an application of conic
sections and share your findings with the class.
