MTG 3212  Modern Geometries credits: 4

This course presents the axioms, basic concepts, proofs and constructions of Euclidean geometry involving line segments, angles, triangles, polygons, circles, parallel lines and similarity. Constructions are made using both compass and straightedge and interactive geometry software. The course also presents basic concepts of non-Euclidean geometries including hyperbolic and spherical. Emphasis is on using technology to make conjectures and discoveries concerning geometrical relationships and then constructing proofs to verify the relationships.

Prerequisite: MAC 2311 with a minimum grade of C
