About the course:
Thousands of years back, mathematicians were able to measure the size of the earth by using few facts about lines, angles and circles. This is the power of Geometry. The course 'Introduction to Geometry' starts with the idea of parallel lines and angles and move up to 2D and 3D shapes.

The course will not restrict itself to theorems and proofs of geometry but teach some interesting real life applications of geometry such as counting the number of stones in Pyramid of Giza.
