Elsewhere in this issue Ferdinand Verhulst described the discussion of the interaction of analysis and geometry in the 19th century. In modern times such discussions come up again and again. As of 2014, synthetic geometry will not be part of the Dutch 'vwo - mathematics B' programme anymore. Instead, the focus will be more on analytic geometry. Mark Timmer and Nellie Verhoef explored possibilities to connect the two disciplines in order to have students look at analytical exercises from a more synthetic point of view.
