**__________****________________________________________________________________________****__________****________________________________________________________________________**9 Dec - Tues - Prepare to present your final project abstract orally in class.
4 Dec - Thur **Test 2**study guide2 Dec - Tues - Choose a short (new to our class) Euclidean Sketchpad exploration, Euclidean web applet, or computer exploration related to Euclidean geometry, and be prepared to present it. Be sure to put it in context by discussing why it is interesting or important. Message Dr. Sarah the web address or the name of the built-in Sketchpad file so that she can post the info on the class highlights page. This is an individual assignment and will count as participation.
- Study for test 2 and write down any questions you have.
25 Nov - Tues **Project 7:**Parallels and Connections20 Nov - Thur - Choose a short Euclidean geometry proof related to content in one of the two books [the proof does not need to be in the book]. Present the proof in your own words on the blackboard or transparancy projector in modern language and in 5 minutes or less. This is an individual assignment and will count as participation.
18 Nov - Tues - Meet in 205.
- Review the following and write down any questions you have:

The Euclidean proof that the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees.

The construction of a Euclidean parallel via perpendiculars (the existence of a parallel in Playfair's theorem), which requires I-27, but no proposition that comes afterwards.

The proof that Euclid's 5th (and propositions I-29...) implies uniqueness of parallels in Playfair's Theorem.- Bring Sibley's
*The Geometric Viewpoint*and Test 1 to lab.13 Nov - Thur - Skim our books for information on parallels. Message Dr. Sarah on ASULearn or write down (to turn in) a brief summary of what you found that includes page numbers. Also prepare to share what you found during class discussion.
- Bring both books to class.
11 Nov - Tues - Meet in 205.

History of Surfaces: Darrell and Katy14 Oct - Tues - If it is not in my office already, bring your ball to class on Tuesday.
- Your topic for the Historical Timeline assignment must be approved by Dr. Sarah on a first-come-first-served basis as a message on ASULearn. Approved topics will be posted under Project 5's due date.
- Work on Project 5 via book research in the library and/or Dr. Sarah's office and via web research.
7 Oct - Tues **Test 1**study guide2 Oct - Thur - Read through the study guide for test 1 and write down any questions you have.
- Skim our books for information on polygons and polyhedra [other appendix searches like square or cube... may be needed]. Message Dr. Sarah on ASULearn or write down (to turn in) a brief summary of what you found that includes page numbers.
30 Sept - Tues **Project 4:**Similarity25 Sept - Thur - Work on Project 4.
23 Sept - Tues **Project 3:**Axiom Systems and Wile E. Coyote- Bring Sibley
*The Geometric Viewpoint*to class.18 Sept - Thur - Skim through both books for similarity [other appendix searches like angle-angle... may be needed]. Message Dr. Sarah on ASULearn or write down (to turn in) a brief summary of what you found that includes page numbers.
- Continue working on Project 3.
16 Sept - Tues - Read Project 2 Solutions on ASULearn.
- Begin working on Project 3.
11 Sept - Thur **Project 2: Measurement and Constructions**Prepare to turn in work that follows the guidelines. See ASULearn for hints. You may work alone or in a group and turn in one per group (maximum 3 people)**Wallace and West**8*Roads to Geometry*1.1**Sibley**3 and 10*The Geometric Viewpoint*1.1**Sketchpad**Examine Wallace and West*Roads to Geometry*p. 210 Construction 4.9.4 and Euclid's Elements Book 1 to look at Proposition 9.

1) Use Sketchpad to complete the construction. You may only use straight edge and compass features and additional Sketchpad features which are construction propositions that come before proposition 9.

2) Save your document as yourname.gsp (no spaces!) and attach it onto the personal storage space in ASULearn.9 Sept - Tues - Meet in 205.
- Read Wallace and West
*Roads to Geometry*p. 1-5 and 8-9, and Sibley*Geometric Viewpoint*p. 2-5 and p. 9 and come to class prepared to discuss the readings.- Begin working on Project 2.
