 # Coordinate Geometry

## Introduction

Coordinate Geometry involves using functions and formulas to plot line on a graph. Using coordinate geometry we cannot only find the equations of lines but we can also do a lot of interesting and useful calculations such as finding the gradient, mid-point, distance between two points and finding the equations of parallel or perpendicular lines. On the right you can see a graph with the following function: Why this equation represents the red line on the graph is explained in the basics of coordinate geometry lesson. In the more advanced lesson, you will be able to learn about things such as mid-point and distance between two points.

WHERE MATHS IS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!  ### Basics of Coordinate Geometry

In this lesson, you will learn the basics of co-ordinate geometry such as plotting lines on a graph and finding the equation of a line. Furthermore, you will be able to look at some other relationships between the equation and the line.

This lesson will cover the more advanced topics of coordinate geometry. These include finding the mid-point between two points, determining the distance between two points and more. You will also learn some more advanced coordinate geometry skills such as plotting functions with square and cubic x values.

### Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

In this lesson, you can learn about determining equations for lines that are parallel or perpendicular to the original line.
