Transcript

  • 1. COORDINATE GEOMETRY TIU Session 4 College Entrance Test Review
  • 2. Rene Descartes
    • Father of Modern Philosophy
    • Many contributions to math:
      • Cartesian Coordinate System
        • Which uses ALGEBRA to describe GEOMETRY
      • Descartes’ Rule of Signs
  • 3. Cartesian Coordinate System X-axis Y-axis Point – described as an ORDERED PAIR
  • 4. Recall: Undefined terms in geometry? POINT – now described as (x, y) LINE – we will define as an equation: where x & y are unknowns, and a and b are known quantities. PLANE – the Cartesian plane (previous slide)
  • 5. “ Features” of a LINE
    • SLOPE
    • MIDPOINT
    • LENGTH OF A LINE SEGMENT (or DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO POINTS)
  • 6. SLOPE OF A LINE / LINE SEGMENT
    • Steepness
  • 7. SLOPE – usually computed using two given points
    • Given the points
    • P(7, 2) and Q (3, -5)
    • in a plane. Find the slope of the line containing these two points.
    • the slope m of line
    is given by = .
  • 8. Graph of: Line segment with endpoints (7, 2) and (3, -5). Plotted by www.wolframalpha.com.
  • 9. MIDPOINT OF TWO POINTS
    • Midpoint M of two points P and Q
    • Given the points P(7, 2) and Q(3,-5) in a plane. Find the midpoint of these two points.
  • 10. Midpoint – is like getting the AVERAGE – is a POINT, so your answer must have two coordinates. – Get the average of the X coordinates, and the average of the Y coordinates Midpoint Formula:
  • 11. Given the points P(7, 2) and Q(3,-5) in a plane. Find the midpoint of these two points.
  • 12. Distance between Two Points (or the length of a line segment) Given the points P(7, 2) and Q(3,-5) in a plane. Find the distance between these two points.
  • 13. How do we get the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle? Pythagorean Theorem:
  • 14. Distance between two points Distance Formula
  • 15. PRACTICE TIME! 
  • 16. EQUATIONS OF A LINE
