Fundamentals Of Geometry –
This course is designed to have students demonstrate the ability to use fundamental concepts of geometry including definitions, tools of geometry, and to recognize geometry as an axiomatic system.
This undergraduate-level course is 5 weeks. This course is available to take individually or as part of a degree or certificate program. To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Advisor.
