horizontal hyperbola vertical hyperbola
• Graph looks sort of like two mirrored parabolas, with the two "halves" being called "branches".
• "Vertices" are defined similarly to the way of a "vertex" is defined for a parabola.
• Just as the focus for a parabola, the two foci for a hyperbola are inside each branch.
• The line connecting the two vertices is called the "transverse axis".
