SUNY at Stony Brook MAT 360: Geometric structures
Fall 2015

Welcome to MAT 360

This is a course in planar geometry, covering both Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries. It is assumed that you have already had a high-school course in Euclidean geometry. Our approach will be primarily axiomatic. We will be doing a lot of proofs, so it is crucial that you be familar with basic logic and proof techniques (as covered in MAT 200).

For more information, please select General information link in the menu to the left.
