# Ch 31: Coordinate Geometry

Use our video lessons and quizzes to show you how coordinates can prove geometric theorems. Learn methods of finding out the properties of geometric figures and solving problems in the coordinate plane.

## Coordinate Geometry - Chapter Summary

The video lessons in this chapter will equip you to apply the concepts and properties of slope, midpoint, parallelism, perpendicularity and distance in exploring the properties of geometric figures and solving problems in the coordinate plane. In this chapter, you'll learn to use the distance formula, prove geometric theorems and prove the slope criteria. Other lessons describe how to apply formulas for perimeter, area, surface area and volume of geometric figures and shapes, such as polygons, pyramids and prisms. By the end of this chapter, you should be able to:

• Utilize coordinates to prove geometric theorems
• Use the distance formula to solve geometric problems
• Solve geometric problems using slope criteria
• Find a point that partitions a segment
• Utilize coordinates to compute the perimeters of polygons
• Find the areas of triangles and rectangles through the use of coordinates

Our brief lessons are taught by experienced instructors who know how to make learning fun. A written transcript of each video is provided, giving you another method to access this material. Important terms that you'll need to remember are highlighted in the lessons. You can test your knowledge of the topic you've just covered with the multiple-choice questions at the end of each lesson. These questions contain links to the video, so you can easily go back and review key points without having to re-watch the entire lesson.
