EMATH 6111 Geometry and Measurement I: From Polygons to Pythagoras

This first course integrates the study of geometry and measurement and includes lines, angles, investigations of triangles including sorting, similarity, trigonometry, and Pythagoras' Theorem. We will also investigate quadrilaterals, polygons, area, and perimeter. Participants will examine the nature of geometric definitions and follow a path that explores mathematical explanation, argument, and justification and how these processes connect to geometric proof.
