Ivanov presents mathematical problems at about the first-year university level for teachers, students, and others interested in mathematics who have at least a high-school senior or first-year university calculus understanding of functions, quadratic equations, mathematical induction, Euclidean geometry of triangles and circles, and coordinate geometry as it applies to these figures and to parabolas.

Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 2011) Geometry Standard (9-12) * Analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships * use trigonometric relationships to determine lengths and angle measures * Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems * use Cartesian coordinates and other coordinate systems, such as navigational, polar, or spherical systems, to analyze geometric situations Table 2.
Activities explored include connecting midpoints of sides of polygons, identifying and classifying quadrilaterals through coordinate geometry and constructing the formulae for finding the midpoint and the distance between two points and for the area and volume of familiar figures.
The book is rich in references and allusions to historical topics that Grattan-Guinness has spent a lifetime researching, but at times one wishes he would share more of the wealth of his knowledge to flesh out off-hand comments or bare-bones assertions not readily comprehended by outsiders, such as the claim that Descartes' algebraic geometry was not coordinate geometry (p.
In post-16 mathematics the major content is coordinate geometry in the plane.
The purpose of this work is to develop a generic algorithm, to do an offset between planners and spherical 3D objects through segmentation and non-manifold operations with the help of 3D coordinate geometry.
