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 (more precisely, know the geometry covered in MAT 200).
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
(again, as covered in MAT 200).
