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.
