Topics: We will study Euclidean, spherical and hyperbolic geometry and their relationship to the topology and geometry of surfaces.

Exams: There will be two in-class midterm exams, dates TBA. The final exam is Wed, Dec 19 at 9 AM.

Homework: With some possible exceptions, homework will be assigned every week on Wednesdays and will be due on the following Wednesday in class. Late homework will not be accepted, but I will omit your lowest homework grade from the final tabulation. You are strongly encouraged to collaborate on homework, but solution must be written up individually.

Grading: 20% homework, 20% each midterm, 40% final

Academic integrity: The work you do on homework and on the exams is expected to be your own, although as mentioned above, collaborating with your classmates is encouraged on homework.
