CHANGING SYSTEMS OF GEOMETRY FROM EUCLID TO KLEIN'S PROGRAMME

INTRODUCTION


This module has been produced as a distance-learning package. It is intended that the student should read through the notes provided and use the reading list and other History of Mathematics Links to answer further questions that are specified at various points in the course.

When the three questions have been completed they should be sent to:

DIANA THOMPSON
SCIT
University of Wolverhampton
Wulfruna Street
Wolverhampton
WV1 1SB

The tutor will then write back within a week to say whether the assessment should be attempted.

The assessment will constitute one of the six prescribed in the module guide. The other assessments will be handed out at intervals in the summer term.
