Math 506 Modern Geometry (Graduate) – Fall II

This course offers a critical presentation of the development and philosophical significance of non-Euclidean geometry. The goal of this course is to advance understanding of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, through analytic methods and critical thinking. Upon completion of this course, you should be able to construct mathematical proofs and logical arguments, compare Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, evaluate several important theorems of hyperbolic geometry, evaluate several important theorems of projective geometry, analyze several important theorems of fractal geometry, examine God’s natural order in light of mathematical understanding.
