A package for education in mathematics that focuses on the study of a conic is presented. The package is structured in a hypertextual way, including a part on theory and a guided lab for the practical session. The most meaningful innovation is given by the verification routines. The user may solve exercises by hand and check the solutions he/she finds by using two verification functions.
