Geometry is a gold mine for multiple solution tasks and proofs by applying different methods within the specific topic of geometry and/or within other mathematical topics such as analytic geometry, trigonometry, etc.
The problems are written (or selected) for students in Years 10 through to 12 and are grouped into six categories: Algebra, Similar Figures, Functions, Analytic Geometry, Three Dimensional Geometry and Systems of Equations.
This principle is highlighted in the title of the volume, which borrows from analytic geometry the notion of the asymptote, that is, a straight line whose distance from a curve approaches zero as they tend to infinity.
It assumes knowledge of basic algebra terminology and methods and experiences in factoring second-degree polynomials, concepts of analytic geometry, and functional notation.

This work also gave the world the wonderfully fruitful marriage of algebra and geometry that we know today as analytic geometry (developed independently by Fermat and Descartes).
Furthermore, from the analytic geometry we know that the distance between any two points in the plane can be calculated from the expression
A complete manifold is thus a three-dimensional system of points, lines and the rest having all the geometrical properties of the abstract spaces we study in high school analytic geometry, and a manifold more generally conceived is a three-dimensional system having very many of those properties.
From his childhood and schooling, to his contributions to science such as the invention of analytic geometry and his methods for testing hypotheses that formed the foundation of experimental science, to his piety as a Christian and much more, Cogito, Ergo Sum closely follows Descartes' life.
