Math 321 syllabus
A review the major topics (from secondary school curriculum) of
plane and solid geometry from the modern viewpoint; axioms, undefined terms,
definitions, theorems, and proofs.
Prerequisite: C or better in MA 320.
Text: George Jennings: Modern Geometry with Applications Springer ISBN: 0-387-94222-X
Students will have a deeper understanding of elementary
geometry from a modern viewpoint. They will understand Euclidean constructions and
Cartesian algebra, as well as more modern techniques involving incidence axioms and
isometric transformations. Students will gain experience in solving problems and
communicating mathematical ideas effectively. Optional topics include non-Euclidean
geometry, projective geometry, and finite geometries.
