Objectives
THE AIM OF THIS COURSE IS TO INTRODUCE THE STUDENTS TO THE THEORY OF EUCLIDEAN VECTOR SPACES AND TO THE THEORY OF AFFINE AND EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRY.

EXPECTED LEARNING RESULTS

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:

THE COURSE AIMS TO PROVIDE THE STUDENTS WITH A SOLID BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF EUCLIDEAN VECTOR SPACES, AFFINE SPACES AND AFFINE AND ISOMETRIC MAPS.

APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:

THE COURSE FURTHER AIMS TO ENABLE STUDENTS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS CONCERNING EUCLIDEAN VECTOR SPACES AND AFFINE SPACES, PARTICULARLY IN DIMENSION 2 AND 3.
Prerequisites
IT IS REQUIRED A KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS COVERED IN THE COURSE GEOMETRY I

Teaching Methods
64 HOURS OF LECTURES DIVIDED BETWEEN THEORETICAL LESSONS AND EXERCISES.
Verification of learning
THE EXAM IS AIMED TO EVALUATE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONCEPTS PRESENTED IN CLASS AND THE ABILITY TO APPLY SUCH KNOWLEDGE TO THE SOLUTION OF SIMPLE PROBLEMS.

THE EXAMINATION IS DIVIDED INTO A SELECTIVE WRITTEN EXAM AND AN ORAL EXAM. THE WRITTEN EXAM CONSISTS OF SOME EXERCISES. THE ORAL EXAM EVALUATES THE ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE OF THE THEORY OF EUCLIDEAN VECTOR SPACES AND THE THEORY OF AFFINE SPACES.

THE FINAL ASSESSMENT IS EXPRESSED BY A VOTE FROM 0 TO 30. THE WRITTEN EXAM IF PASSED GIVES ACCESS TO THE ORAL EXAM WHICH DETERMINES THE FINAL VOTE IN FULL. THE MINIMUM MARK FOR THE ORAL EXAM REQUIRES KNOWLEDGE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS OF THE TOPICS MENTIONED ABOVE. THE MAXIMUM MARK IS OBTAINED WHEN THE STUDENT SHOWS MASTERY IN THE DISCUSSION OF SUCH TOPICS.
