Math 3696

MATH 3696 Geometry
Prerequisite: A grade of "C" or higher in MATH 2254
It is recommended that students taking this course have
successfully completed Math 2255 or Math 3312. At a minimum,
students should have an avid interest in mathematics, its
foundation, and logic.
This is a rigorous development of plane geometry starting with
Book I of The Elements of Euclid and continuing through the
subject as it evolved during the 19th century. Depending on the
interest of the instructor and the students, topics may include a
deeper study of projective planes, non-Euclidean geometries,
early developments in algebraic geometry, or the use of modern
algebra and/or analysis in geometry.
