UVU Math 6100 Objectives

 

Special Topics in Geometry and Topology Course Objectives

Upon successful completion, students should be able to:

  1. Describe the logical development of Euclidean and non-Euclidean plane Geometry. 
  2. Develop geometric intuition through the use of figures, models, and dynamic geometric software. 
  3. Demonstrate facility in making good arguments in a mathematical context. 
  4. Prove substantive Euclidean results in a context where they already have comfortable intuition. 
  5. Explain hyperbolic geometry as an axiomatic system. 
  6. Develop intuition in non-Euclidean axiomatic systems by carefully employing the axioms. 
  7. Prove theorems in non-Euclidean axiomatic systems by carefully employing the axioms. 
  8. Communicate ideas clearly and concisely both orally and in writing.
