3. Course contents *

In this course we will make the student familiar with often used properties and often used shapes and transformations. These can be used to study patterns and tesselations of the plane. We also look at polyhedra and their properties. We then study conic sections in 2D and look at mathematical surfaces and interesting 3D-objects, like quadrics and ruled surfaces.
