This online course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of geometry. It covers basic principles, including points and lines, angles and triangles, quadrilaterals, and circles and their properties. You will learn about different techniques used in analyzing shapes as well as how to develop a deeper understanding of geometric principles. You will also gain an understanding of how to apply your knowledge of geometry to other areas such as trigonometry, physics, engineering, and architecture.
Through interactive lectures, readings, discussions, videos, and assignments you will develop your knowledge of basic geometric concepts while learning practical skills such as drawing figures based on given criteria, finding missing elements in diagrams using theorems and axioms, constructing proofs, and solving real-world problems involving geometric shapes. This course is ideal for those who are new to studying geometry or are interested in pursuing a path involving more advanced topics in the subject.
