Using analytic geometry in the study of stereometry school course
The research deals with the historical facts of the coordinate-vector method and its application for solving stereometric problems in geometry.
Objective: To show the continuity between the school geometry course and geometry of higher education.
Research tasks: 1) to highlight the historical facts that led to the development of the coordinate-vector method in analytic geometry; 2) to show the use of the investigational method in the study of geometry and solving problems.
Object of research: the process of learning geometry by students.
Subject of research: the use of the coordinate-vector method for solving geometric problems.
Research results: efficiency of coordinate-vector method for solving stereometric problems have been revealed.
Research methods: Analysis of historical, scientific and methodical literature, coordinate and vector methods.
Conclusions: The historical facts that served for the development of coordinate and vector methods have been looked through, the advantages of using a coordinate-vector method for solving stereometric problems in the school geometry course and the geometry of higher education have been revealed.
