216 Descriptive Title : Credit : Course Description : Modern Geometry 3 units Modern Geometry includes, but is not limited to, the structure of plane and solid geometry, coordinate geometry, and calculations involving areas and volumes of geometric figures. Creative problem solving is emphasized throughout the course, and the notion of mathematical proof and deductive structure are introduced. With the understanding of the basic concepts of plane geometry, students engage in higher order mathematical thought to solve problems and prove statements in plane and solid geometry. This course will cover computations on Areas and Volumes of 2dimensional and 3dimensional space such as Cube, Rectangular Parallelepiped, Prism, Cylinder, Cone, Frustums, Spheres, Solids of Revolution and Prismatoid and objects involving algebraic and trigonometric solutions.

Prerequisite : None Course Objectives : At the end of the course, the students will be able to 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. calculate measurements of plane and solid geometric figures. construct logical arguments, based on axioms, definitions and theorems, to prove theorems and other results in geometry. know and apply properties of geometric figures too solve real-world and mathematical problems and to logically justify results in geometry. appreciate space and develop space intuition. relate solid geometry to familiar objects of everyday experiences. develop their imagination in visualizing space objects. develop computing skills.
