Analytical Geometry
In this course, we explore the topic of analytical geometry. We start by recapping the basic procedures and concepts related to the topic, such as the distance formula, midpoint formula and gradient formula, and how to find the equations of straight lines.
After that, we move our attention to the specific subtopics: inclination of a line, parallel and perpendicular lines, and intersection points. Thereafter, we look at different shaped polygons, paying special attention to quadrilaterals and how they relate to the earlier content.
If you want to get a headstart on Paper 2 content and get to grips with these fundamentals, come and join us – we’d love to see you there!
