For millennia, rigorous logic, exact procedures, and modeling the physical world have been essential elements of geometry. But geometry has also been used to provide symbols and tools to study the metaphysics of unity, beauty, polarity, harmony, and infinity. Students in this class will explore mathematics in the classic liberal arts tradition by collecting and analyzing data, verifying propositions, and connecting quantitative and qualitative aspects of the world. (Credit awarded in geometry.)
