Description

This course is a study of topics in advanced geometry from three perspectives: synthetic, analytic, and transformational. Topics include advanced results in Euclidean geometry, axiomatic development of Euclidean and non-Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, the use of coordinates, transformations, and symmetries. Writing, primarily in the form of mathematical proof, is an essential component of the course. Three lecture hours per week. Required of all Mathematics majors with a Secondary Education minor. Not open to students who have received credit for MAT405.
