This paper aims to present conics when defined in a non-Euclidean geometry: the Taxicab geometry. The choice of this geometry was due to the simplicity of its definitions enabling diverse applications in Basic Education. It differs from Euclidean geometry by its metric and presents interesting and surprising results that enable the development of a more critical and meaningful learning.
