MAT 321 Foundations of Geometry

Prerequisite: MAT 315

This course will include an overall view of the structure of geometry evolving from the basic axioms of Euclidean geometry. The interrelationships between various geometries such as affine, neutral, hyperbolic, projective, elliptic, and others will be studied, as well as some of the easier, important results of each. Because this material is necessary for a good understanding of Euclidean geometry, it is important that those students considering a high-school teaching career in mathematics enroll in this course.
