Course Objectives This course is designed as a first year course for mathematics students. The goal of the course is to recover the sets, relations and functions and cartesian coordinates in the plane, to review line equations and some methods on graphing relations and functions and also graphs in polar coordinates, to have some basic ideas about vectors in the plane with some of their applications, to make some discussions on parabolas, ellipses, hyperbolas with graphs and their applications.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • understand the sets, relations and functions
  • understand Cartesian coordinates in the plane, lines and be able to sketch the of relations and graphs in polar coordinates
  • understand vectors in the plane and their applications
  • learn the parabola, ellipse and hyperbola and their applications
Course Content Fundamental principles of analytic geometry, cartesian coordinates, lines in plane, trigonometry, polar coordinates, rotation and translation in plane, conics.
