Includes an overview of the foundations and methods of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries and their role in Western thought and education. Emphasis is given to concepts, theorems, methods of problem attack, problem solutions and elements of proof. Explores various approaches to geometry from different perspectives. These perspectives include blending coordinate and transformational ideas with conventional synthetic ideas. Ideas involving geometric experimentation are enhanced using technology-based (software and computer graphics) investigations. Students have to do a written project and an oral presentation. Falls. Prerequisite(s): MA 2000 and 1 semester of calculus. (TECO)(WRCO)
