A Collection of Problems in Analytical Geometry, Part I: Analytical Geometry in the Plane is a collection of problems dealing with higher analytical geometry. The book discusses elementary problems dealing with plane analytical geometry. The text presents topics on the axis and intervals on an axis and coordinates on a straight line. The book also defines what a rectangular Cartesian coordinates in a plane is, the division of an interval in a given ratio, and shows how to calculate the area of a triangle. The equation of a curve, the functions of two variables, and the concept of an equation of a curve are explained by the use of examples and problems.

The author also addresses the geometrical properties of curves of the second order, the equations of a straight line, a circle, an ellipse, a hyperbola, and a parabola. The text then discusses the general theory of second-order curves and emphasizes the equations of the central curves of the second order. The author cites the simplification of these equations as being applicable to theoretical mechanics.

This collection of problems can be used by teachers of analytical geometry and their students.
