Course Description:

One day in 2580 B.C., a very serious architect stood on a dusty desert with a set of plans.  His plans called for creating a structure 480 feet, with a square base and triangular sides, using stone blocks weighing two tons each.  The Pharaoh wanted the job done right.  The better our architect understood geometry, the better were his chances for staying alive. Geometry is everywhere, not just in pyramids.  Engineers use geometry to bank highways and build bridges.  Artists use geometry to create perspective in their paintings, and mapmakers help travelers find things using the points located on a geometric grid.  Throughout this course, we’ll take you on a mathematical highway illuminated by spatial relationships, reasoning, connections, and problem solving. This course is all about points, lines and planes.  Just as importantly, this course is about acquiring a basic tool for understanding and manipulating the real world around you.
