Using the online Perseus database of classical texts students learn a subset of Koine Greek that is sufficient to read the theorems and proofs in Euclid's Elements Books 1-4. The course also explores in English non-Euclidean geometry and modern alternatives to Euclid's five postulates. Class time is divided roughly equally between mathematics and language.
