MATH 7307T Geometry for High School Mathematics Teachers
4 hours; 4 credits
The course is organized around two main themes: Some Theorems and Applications in "Modern" Euclidean Geometry and Geometric Transformations and their applications. There will be an emphasis on the role of (1) conjecture and proof and (2) proofs using synthetic methods, trigonometric methods, area methods, coordinate methods, and transformational methods. Finally, in addition to Euclidean geometry, students study the basic ideas of spherical geometry. Geometer's Sketchpad or some other dynamic geometry software will be used extensively to explore geometric relationships. This course may not be taken towards a master of arts degree in mathematics.
Prerequisite: Acceptance into the Master?s Degree in 7-12 Mathematics Education or permission of the Chair of the Mathematics Department.
