Course aims

The aim of the course is to provide a concise overview of vectors, their standard basis, equations of lines and planes and the relations between them.

Brief description of the course

Bound vector and free vector. Linear transformations of vectors. Scalar product, vector product and triple product. Equation of a straight line on a plane. Transformation of the equation from one form to another. Main tasks of analytic geometry on plane. Equations of lines and planes in space. Relative positions of lines and planes. Polar coordinates.

Learning outcomes in the course
