MATH 552 - Topics in Analytic Geometry

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: Admission to the MAT in Mathematics program or consent of instructor
Properties, definitions and applications of conic sections will be studied. Vectors, polar coordinates and calculus will be used to enhance the presentation and to develop formulas for tangent lines, areas and volumes. Translation and rotation of axis and invariants under translation will be covered. Quadric surfaces and their graphs, along with homogeneous coordinates, will be discussed.
