The course will begin with the discoveries of ancient mathematicians such as Archimedes, Eratosthenes and the Father of Geometry, Euclid. This classic geometry of two-dimensions is similar to what you may have studied in high school, but we will study more advanced Euclidean geometry through rigorous deductive proof. During the second half of the semester, we will move into geometry based upon other axiomatic structures, specifically: non-Euclidean geometry, projective geometry, and fractal geometry. Prerequisite: MATH295 - Foundations of Abstract Mathematics.
MATH370 is a 4 credit course.
