MT 522 Overview
This one-semester introduction to Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries serves as an introduction to mathematical proof. Through an exploration of properties of plane geometry and Euclid’s Postulates, students will develop skill in logical mathematical reasoning, and learn to develop good mathematical proofs. The importance of axiomatic reasoning is developed through experiences with some non-Euclidean geometries. While not a teaching methods course, practical ways to implement geometry into the middle/high school curriculum will be modeled through the use of dynamic geometry software. Also listed under MT 320. Prerequisite: Strong background in algebra (college algebra or equivalent) and departmental approval.
