• Module name: Introduction to Geometry
• Department: Mathematics Institute
• Credit: 6

## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

The aim of this module is for students: To learn and enjoy Euclidean geometry of the plane, the sphere and of three-dimensional space; To learn to visualise geometrical problems, and to draw diagrams which represent them accurately; To learn to reason from diagrams, and use them as an aid to writing rigorous proofs;To learn to construct proofs, and to set them out clearly and convincingly.

###### Principal learning outcomes

You will gain familiarity with: Plane Euclidean geometry: isometries, congruence and similarity; theorems on triangles, circles, tangents and angles; ruler and compass constructions; Polyhedra: the Euler characteristic; classification and construction of regular polyhedra; Spherical geometry: the angle-sum formula for spherical triangles; stereographic projection and its relation with inversion; conformal (angle-preserving) maps.
