Course description

Geometry is about symmetry, shape, and space. This course emphasizes mathematical reasoning and the role of mathematical discourse in geometry classrooms. Our explorations begin with the classic work on geometry, Euclid's The Elements. We study straightedge and compass constructions; investigate golden rectangles, constructible numbers, and geometry in higher dimensions; and work to more modern topics such as tessellations and Pick's Theorem.
