MTG 3212 MODERN GEOMETRIES
Prerequisite: MAC 2311 with a grade of "C" or better. 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. 62 contact hours.
