HOMEWORK PROBLEMS and READING ASSIGNMENTS/ENRICHMENTS

Spring 2012

**Homework 0 (due Mon Jan 23, 2012): ** Attempt Problem 1 in
Chapter 0, page 6. If you know how to solve the treasure Island
problem then please write down your solution and turn it in on Monday
(do not copy a solution found in the book, that will defeat the purpose
of the homework).

**Reading enrichment:**
Chapter 1 in Stefan Kulczycki's book
* Non-euclidean Geometry*
From the History of geometry (pdf file generated by the scanner).

**Group Project 1 (Week of Jan 23-Jan 25): **
In this project we explore different plane models from the point of view of
the incidence axioms. Different groups investigate different models.
