Undergraduate Courses MA 433, Introduction to Geometry Course Description and Goals This is a basic course in geometry for students in mathematics, science, and engineering. Topics include geometry from an axiomatic point of view introduction to non-Euclidean geometries with emphasis on elliptic and hyperbolic geometries. selected topics in Euclidean geometry. Course goals include an improved ability the think abstractly, and in particular, a basic understanding of an abstract geometrical structure defined axiomatically a basic understanding of the classical non-Euclidean geometries an improved understanding of Euclidean geometry and a reinforcement of concepts and techniques learned previously an improved ability to read, write, speak, and think in mathematical terms. Prerequisites MA 244 and MA 330 Credit 3 Semester Hours Grading System This course is graded A, B, C, D, F. The grade typically depends on a combination of class tests, homework assignments, quizzes, and a comprehensive final exam.
