MATH200 Analytic Geometry (3 semester hours)

This course introduces students to the concepts of analytic geometry. Some of the most important applications in physical sciences will be presented; however, emphasis is on the fundamentals of analytic geometry as a foundation for the study of calculus. Students may use this course for higher level prerequisite mathematics requirements. Topics include: plane analytic geometry; vectors in the plane; equations of lines, circles, and conic sections; transformation of coordinates; curve sketching of polynomial and rational functions; polar coordinates; parametric equations; and three dimensional vectors. (Prerequisite: MATH111 or equivalent)
