An axiomatic approach to elementary Euclidean plane geometry

## Description

##### Content

An axiomatic approach to elementary Euclidean plane geometry; ruler-and-compass constructions; the use of mathematical software to illustrate elementary geometry.

##### Completion methods

Homeworks and Course exam.

## Learning outcomes

After the course the student
• knows the basics of the axiomatic geometry
• can prove central results concerning lines, triangles and circles
• can solve problems using theorems of both congruent and similar triangles and inscribed angles
• can do ruler-and-compass constructions and validate the constructions
• has basic control over some geometry-oriented mathematical software (e.g. Geogebra)
