Review advanced coordinate geometry to prepare for the SAT Subject Test Math 2. Make use of our video lessons with quizzes to study parabolas, graphing, symmetry and polar coordinates in easy-to-use lessons.

Advanced Coordinate Geometry - Chapter Summary

Does a parabola sound a little like an alien from another planet? It is actually the U-shaped geometric occurrence you get each time you graph a quadratic equation. In this chapter, you can learn the three different ways to express a parabola, including the standard, vertex and intercept forms.

Graphing equations with differing exponential values in another important skill in coordinate geometry. This chapter reminds you how to pay attention to the local maximums and minimums, or 'hills and valleys', to graph equations. Helpful pointers are included for taking multiple-choice tests that include graphing problems, such as the SAT Subject Test Math 2. All the topics below are included:

• Basics of parabolas
• Parabolas in three forms
• Graphing quartics, cubics and quintics
• Formula, center and radius while graphing a circle
• Hyperbolas and ellipses in graphing
• Polar coordinates and symmetry on graphs

Our video lessons are informative and easy-to-use. They include transcripts of the complete text and tags to locate specific portions for review. The multiple-choice quizzes are good practice for the questions you'll find on the SAT subject test in math.

If math comes easy to you, and you want a chance to showcase your skills, you can take the SAT Subject Test Math 2. Results from this test can be added to your admissions materials to help you get into the college of your choice. Reviewing these concepts on advanced coordinate geometry will help you prepare for the geometry and measurement content area of the test, which represents 28%-32% of the entire test. This subject test has 50 multiple-choice questions on numbers and math operations, algebra, functions, data analysis and probability in addition to geometry and measurement.
