• Calculate the length of a straight line
• Calculate the mid-point of two points
• Calculate the gradient of a line segment
• Find the equation of a straight line
• Find the gradients of parallel and perpendicular lines
• Use gradients of parallel and perpendicular lines to find equations

## Expected Knowledge in Coordinate Geometry

• Length (distance formula)
• Mid-point
• Double intercept form
• Parallel lines
• Perpendicular lines

SKILLS

VALUES

• Curiosity in using distance and gradient formula.
• Recognition of distance and gradient formula.

### Course Content

#### Concept of Coordinates This is a system of geometry where the position of points on the plane is described using an ordered pair of numbers. Recall that a plane is a flat surface that goes on forever in both directions. If we were to place a point on the plane, coordinate geometry gives us a way to describe exactly where it is by using two numbers.
