Coordinate Geometry:

It is another chapter which is huge and covers

  • Straight Lines
  • Circle
  • Ellipse
  • Parabola
  • Hyperbola


This is the most fundamental chapter of mathematics. It needs speed and accuracy of basic calculations.  Although there are topics of Differential Equations, Probability, Complex Numbers, Permutation and Combination, Quadratic Equations and Expressions, Matrices and Determinants, Progressions and Series, Binomial Theorem and Sets, Relations, and Functions, more emphasis should be given to topics of
