Our Teaching Page has useful information for students in all of my classes. It has my schedule, LOR guidelines, and Usually Useful Pamphlets. One of them is the ChecklistThe checklist (pdf) which gives pointers on what I consider to be good mathematical writing. Further information is at our class-archive URL (I email this private URL directly to students).

Friendly 2012Spring Geometry class

  1. Class-C (pdf) pedaled [non-arthritically and non-asthmatically] its way into the hearts of Geometry students. And since it pedaled, it is not pedestrian.
  2. Available are all the [Image: Updated] [Wednesday, 11Apr2012] quizzes so far (pdf).
  3. The much anticipated Class-B (pdf) thrilled crowds with its minimalistic two-tone format, and tasteful use of spacing.
  4. A Practice-A exam (pdf) is available. The actual Class-A (pdf) was remarkably similar.
  5. Does Zero = One? (pdf). Here are some  proofs  poofs to post about...
  6. Animations of compass and straightedge constructions.
  7. Before the course begins, please learn the Math-Greek alphabet (pdf), which we will use frequently.

Tips on writing proofs

End-of-semester Individual Geometry Project-D (pdf)

Prof. due, slid u n d e r room 402 Little Hall my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) , no later than
noon, Friday, 27Apr2012. (Please email me after you have handed it in.)

The project must be carefully typeset, but diagrams may be hand-drawn.

For the typesetting, one possibility is the (free) mathematics-typesetting language LaTeX. It can be learned in a week. (It is the archive language of the American Mathematical Society.)

At all times have a paper copy you can hand-in; I do NOT accept electronic versions. Print out a copy each day, so that you always have the latest version to hand-in; this, in case your printer or computer fails. (You are too old for My dog ate my homework.)

Please follow the guidelines on the Checklist Checklist (pdf, 3pages) to earn full credit.

General Info

Please take a gander at Past courses with notes, exams and links.

In all of my courses, attendance is absolutely required (excepting illness and religious holidays). In the unfortunate event that you miss a class, you are responsible to get all Notes / Announcements / TheWholeNineYards from a classmate, or several. All my classes have a substantial class-participation grade.
Our textbook is Foundations of Geometry, (Second Edition).
