MATH 329 Geometry By Its History (Q)

Last offered Fall 2013

The thorough study of Euclidean geometry has been a cornerstone of a complete education for thousands of years. In this course, we trace the origins of modern geometry by studying its classical roots, including ancient Greek geometry, conic sections, triangle centers, circle theorems, trigonometry, and analytic geometry. Other topics include the impossibility of doubling the cube or trisecting an angle, non-constructable polygons, non-Euclidean geometry, and geometry in higher dimensions.
