# Ch 35: CEOE Middle Level/Intermediate Math: Coordinate Geometry

### About This Chapter

## CEOE Middle Level/Intermediate Math: Coordinate Geometry - Chapter Summary

This chapter contains text and video lessons on coordinate geometry. The lessons are designed as a refresher for you before taking your CEOE Middle Level/Intermediate Math test. They will help you answer test questions on such lesson subject matter as:

- The definition and quadrants of a coordinate plane
- Ordered pairs on the coordinate plane
- How to make use of the midpoint formula
- Determining distance between both points and lines
- Using plotted data on a coordinate plane to solve word problems

Each lesson has a short quiz meant to be taken after lesson completion. If you need to restudy any part of a video lesson, you can use the accompanying manuscript or use the video timeline tool to replay any specific section. We include a feature that allows you to ask questions of the instructor.

### 1. What is a Coordinate Plane? - Definition, Quadrants & Example

In this lesson, you'll learn what a coordinate plane is and some coordinate plane terminology. You'll also see a few examples of coordinate planes in action. Then, you can test your new knowledge with a brief quiz.

### 2. Ordered Pairs on the Coordinate Plane

In this video lesson, you will see how points are plotted on the coordinate plane. Learn the proper way to identify points on the coordinate plane and how to read the points.

### 3. How to Use The Midpoint Formula

The formula for the midpoint of a line segment will tell you how to find the middle of any line segment on the x, y plane. Learn about this formula and see how it is used to find the midpoint of a line segment.

### 4. How to Find the Distance Between Two Points

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to find the distance between any two points on the coordinate plane. Learn what information you and how to plug them in to your formula.

### 5. How to Find the Distance Between a Point & a Line

Finding the distance from a point to a line is useful in many science and engineering applications. In this lesson, we calculate this distance using a formula, as well as with some fundamental concepts from geometry and algebra.

### 6. How to Find the Distance Between Perpendicular Lines

This lesson will walk us through the steps of finding the distance between two perpendicular lines given two points on the lines. We will use multiple examples to illustrate these steps and solidify our understanding of this process.

### 7. Solving Word Problems with Plotted Data on a Coordinate Plane

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to solve word problems that involve plotted points on a coordinate plane. Learn how to choose the right points that will answer your question.
