**Analytic geometry**

**Objectives**

Students should be able to

understand how analytic geometry relates to geometrical and algebraic concepts

understand the concept of a set of points as equations and use these equations as reference to points, lines, circles and parabolas

understand in more detail the concept of absolute value and solve basic absolute value equations and inequalities of the type | f (x) | = A or | f (x) | = | g (x) |

use technological tools to examine a locus of points together with equations, a systems of equations, absolute value equations and inequalities when solving practical problems.
