MAMT 552 Geometry Revisited


3 cr.

Course Description

Most of us have studied the geometry of Euclid in a single secondary school course, but many new ideas have sprouted since his time. New topics will include transformations, isometrics, and vectors. Selected classical topics of angle measurement, length, area, volume, polygons, circles, spheres, and deductive reasoning will also be included. Breadth and problem solving will be emphasized over depth and theory.
