# 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.

### 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.

### Advanced Coordinate Geometry

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.
