While there are subjects that are gradually integrated into the school curriculum over the years, there are subjects that are learned from the first day. One of those subjects? Mathematics. More precisely, first, there are calculation studies, which connect you, the students, with number games in addition and a bit of subtraction. As the years go by, you face more complex issues, and also shapes of which you must know the unique characteristics. One of those shapes, which you are likely also learning about these days, is an ellipse.

The ellipse, as we know, is a collection of points that are at the same distance from $2$ different points. These same points are also the foci of the ellipse. It is important not to get confused and understand the essential difference between an ellipse and a circle: a circle is a collection of points that are equidistant from a single point.
