Although every non-degenerate conic of PG(2, q) is a (q+1)-arc, the converse is true only for q odd; for q even and greater than four there also exist (q+1)-arcs that are not conics.
Now we show that the principal directions of A are the axes of symmetry for the conic.

This model will also allow students to explore a range of conics with eccentricities ranging between 0.
Now as you move the point B, the movement of the circle is sampled along a conic locus.
Move the point B and a conic with l =|DB| and r = e l is traced on the screen.
