This course explores and compares Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries and their axiomatic bases. Euclidean, finite, hyperbolic, spherical, and Taxicab geometries will be included. The approach is designed for teachers, with an emphasis on individual and group projects, applications, and the use of technology to explore geometric ideas. Prerequisites: At least an undergraduate minor in mathematics, with an undergraduate geometry course or experience teaching high school geometry, or consent of instructor.
