UCLA Olga Radko Endowed Math Circle

4/8/2012 -- Junior Circle: Geometry, Foundations, Lines and Straight Lines. (Dr. Oleg Gleizer)

In this class, we will learn how geometry has begun, proceed to Euclid's "Elements" and discuss the notions of an axiom, a point, line, and straight line. At the end, we will do some Greek-style geometry using a rope to perform multiplication and even raising a number to a power!
