Analytic geometry creates a connection between graphs and equations. For example, the linear function f(x) = x2 – 2 (an equation) can also be represented by a graph:

Euclidean Geometry is based solely on geometric axioms without formulas or co-ordinates; Analytic geometry is the “marriage” of algebra and geometry with axes and co-ordinates [1].

Calculus and Analytic Geometry

Calculus and analytic geometry have become so intertwined, it’s rare nowadays to find a course in pure “Analytic Geometry”. It’s more common to take a course in Calculus and Analytic Geometry, which blends the principles of basic analytic geometry with concepts like functions, limits, continuity, derivatives, antiderivatives, and definite integrals.
