Fall 2015: Introduction to Geometry

Lessons are Monday 16:00-17:30, Wednesday 14:30-16:00, Room FTX227.

References: there is no compulsory text. The standard reference is "Modern geometry with applications" by G.A. Jennings (Springer Verlag). A copy of Barry Jessup's hand-written notes is available on the course's page together with many exercises and previous exams.

Office hours: Monday 15-16 LMX 339, Wednesday 16-17 KED B015.

There will be a midterm exam and five assignments starting on Monday, September 21.

  •  Assignment 1  pdf
  •  Assignment 2  pdf
  • If you score less than 40% on your final exam, your final grade is your score on the final exam. Otherwise the final grading will be the best of:

    • 25% (assignments) + 25% (midterm) + 50% (final)
    • 25% (assignments) + 75% (final)

    The assignments score will be obtained as the average of the four best assignments.
