In this page analytical geometry worksheets we are going to see worksheets on the topic analytical geometry. By practicing these worksheets you can improve your knowledge.
Rene Descartes(1596-2650) whose "La Geometric" was published in 1637 as an appendix to his "Discours de la methods" is regarded as the inventor as analytical geo-metry and modern analytical geometry is called Cartesian Geometry after him. However the fundamental principles and methods of this topic were already discovered by Pierre de Fermat earlier.
Descartes procedure in geometry was to begin with a geometrical problem to convert it into an algebraic equation simplify it and then solve the equation geometrically.However, even the usual formula for distance between two points,slope and angle between two straight lines are not to be found in this work of Decartes. These are due to later mathematicians like Clairaut, Monge and Larcoin. Newton used several types of co-ordinates including polar and bipolar.L'Hospital had written a famous text book. analytical geometry worksheets analytical geometry worksheets
Quote on Mathematics
“Mathematics, without this we can do nothing in our life. Each and everything around us is math.
Math is not only solving problems and finding solutions and it is also doing many things in our day to day life. They are:
It subtracts sadness and adds happiness in our life.
It divides sorrow and multiplies forgiveness and love.
Some people would not be able accept that the subject Math is easy to understand. That is because; they are unable to realize how the life is complicated. The problems in the subject Math are easier to solve than the problems in our real life. When we people are able to solve all the problems in the complicated life, why can we not solve the simple math problems?
Many people think that the subject math is always complicated and it exists to make things from simple to complicate. But the real existence of the subject math is to make things from complicate to simple.”
