Course objectives:
Consolidating and building on students prior knowledge of the basic concepts in plane geometry. Improve the students ability of mathematical thinking (conception and reasoning), skills to solve different kinds of math problems as well as argumentative and effective communication of mathematical knowledge, ideas and results related to plane geometry. Developing a positive relationship towards learning and teaching plane geometry, responsibility for one s success and progress, as well as awareness of their mathematical abilities. Build firm foundations for lifelong learning and continued education.
