MATH 3050 2008-2009
Introduction to Geometries
The course meets Wednesday evening 6-9 in the MathStat Lab Ross S525. This setting is important to support our group work and explorations.
I will be experimenting with Moodle as an option to this Wiki for the course. Until it is clear the Moodle Site is going to work well, I will use both.
The course outline is available on the web at http://www.math.yorku.ca/~whiteley/3050_08.htm
The tutorials will run Wednesday 5-6 in our regular classroom (Ross S525). The first tutorial will be shorter - 5:30-6 on Wednesday September 10.
Assignment 2 is now available - due September 24. I encourage you to go the the Moodle site, and download it
Let me know if you are having trouble accessing the moodle site.
Here are links to two of my recent talks on Geometry and Mathematics Education. These will tell you a bit more about my approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics in general, and geometry in particular.
