SME2 Geometry, Conics


and Further Matrices

Topic: Geometry and Further Matrices




Students should be able to:

understand the elements of Euclidean Geometry

use theorems from Euclidean Geometry to provide well-structured proofs


of geometric results


develop algebraic strategies with matrices

apply matrices in a number of contexts

Key focus:

Matrices used to represent various transformations of the plane

Matrix algebra used to manipulate the transformations
