# Analitik Geometri // *Analytic Geometry*

Analitik Geometri (MAT 104) dersi, 2014–5

*Analitik Geometri* (Analytic Geometry, MAT 104) is taken in the second semester of the
first undergraduate year in our department. *Öklid Geometrisine
Giriş* (Introduction to Euclidean Geometry, MAT 113), will have been taken in the first
semester. The Euclidean geometry course is
literally that: students read Book I of Euclid's *Elements* and
present the propositions. They are also asked to find their own proofs,
on the basis of that book, for results not found there.

While leading a section of the Euclid course for four years, I
developed ideas about how the transition to analytic geometry should be
made. Some ideas ended up in an 8-page note of January 23, 2013 called
From Euclid to Descartes

;
more extensive concerns are detailed in the 107 pages of Analytic Geometry

(January 28,
2015). When I taught our analytic geometry course for myself in the
spring of 2014–15, I kept a summary of what we did: Analitik
Geometri Özeti,

in Turkish, on the course
webpage above, but with a 5-page English foreward (and reformatted),
here (64 pages, A5 paper, 12-point type, dated April 8, 2016):
