A system used to define the position of a point in 2- or 3- dimensional space where each axis is perpendicular to each other

1 of 6

Gradient

A measure of the slop of a line, given by the equation (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

2 of 6

intercept

To cut a line, curve or surface with another. In cartesian coordinates, the positive or negative distance from the origin to the point where a line, curve or suface cuts a given axis

3 of 6

linear

In algebra, describing an expression or equation of degree one. A linear equation can be represented as a straight line graph.

4 of 6

quadratic

Describing an expression of the form y=ax^2+bx+c, where a,b and c are real numbers.

5 of 6

simultaneous equations

Two linear equations that apply simultaneously to given variables. The solution to the simultaneous equations is the pair of values for the variables that satisfies both equations.
