MATH 211. Geometry for Elementary Education

An intuitive approach to geometry whose topics include angles, polygons, circles, parallelism, area, perimeter, similarity, congruence, volume, and surface area. Transformations are studied and applied to tessellations and symmetry. The course contains some proofs, but most results are developed by way of informal arguments and inductive reasoning. A dynamic geometry software package is used. Intended for elementary education majors.
