Mt 322 Topics in Geometry - Fall 2003
Department of Mathematics & Computer Science
CARDINAL STRITCH UNIVERSITY
Sr. Barbara E. Reynolds, Ph.D.
The most important objective of this course is to introduce students
to mathematical thinking and reasoning through a hands-on exploration of
interesting and challenging topics in geometry.
The emphasis in this course is on
conjecture, exploration, and articulation of geometric ideas,
leading to the development of a robust proof or refutation.
