Graduation requirements this course fulfills

Advanced geometry presents a formal and fundamental development of Euclidean geometry with an emphasis on valid arguments. Non-Euclidean geometry will also be investigated. The course begins with a thorough review of geometry and continues with a selection of more advanced topics including the nine-point circle, Ceva's Theorem, Euler line, and Menelaus' Theorem.
