MATH 370 Modern Geometry

This course goes beyond the Euclidean Geometry typically taught in high schools. This is a modern approach to geometry based on the systematic use of transformations. It includes a study of some advanced concepts from Euclidean Geometry and then proceeds to examine a wide variety of other geometries, including Non-Euclidean and Projective Geometry. A working knowledge of vectors, matrices, and multivariable calculus is assumed.
