This book was intended as a first course in coordinate geometry of the type envisaged in the Report on the Teaching of Higher Geometry in schools, prepared for the Mathematical Association in 1953. There is however sufficient material to also meet the needs of those reading for a general degree including mathematics. The focus is on Cartesian plane, but with introductory material to the algebra, trigonometry and calculus needed.
