Video "Non-Euclidean Geometry"
When the initial reading for Non-Euclidean geometry has been completed.
You should study the above video produced by the "Open University". This
video can be viewed in the University library when is open 9 am - 9 pm
Monday to Thursday, 9 am - 5.15 pm Friday and 9 am - 12.30 pm Saturday.
It is just necessary to ask for the video by name at the library enquiries.
Further Non-Euclidean Geometry
Before attempting the assessment, it may be necessary to read about Non-Euclidean
Geometry in more detail. It is suggested that you look at the Non-Euclidean
Geometry links and read the section on Non-Euclidean geometry from "The
History of Mathematics - A Reader". (See reading list).
You should now attempt the whole of the assessment on the next page when
you have received your previous questions back from the tutor and she has
indicated that you may proceed with assessment.
Note the assessment should be completed by 26 April 1999
Criteria on which the assessment will be marked are listed below.
Correct proof of midsegment (10%)
2. Correct definition of orthogonal circles (10%)
3. Correct definition of Saccheri quadrilateral (10%)
4. Explanation of Lobachevsky's geometry (40%)
5. Explanation of Poincare' (10%)
6. Explanation of line (5%)
7. Explanation of theorems (15%)
A student feedback form (together with grade) will be completed for
each assessment and will be available approximately three weeks after the
assessment handing in date. Please apply to the tutor for this form
(either ring or email).
