### About This Web Site

This web site contains the material covered in the Math 100
course. In addition to the current syllabus and the homework and
groupwork assignments, there is reference material. There is a
collection of definitions theorems and constructions which may be
used in proofs of theorems which will be covered in class. A rigorous
development of these basic theorems may be found in the
Analytic Foundations of
Geometry. There is also a set of projects from which you may
choose the project assigned in the syllabus.

The illustrations on the homepage for the course are two
constructions which were proved to be impossible using compass and
straightedge. The top one is
Archimedes' trisection of the
angle, and the one on the side is the doubling of the cube. The
doubling of the cube does not use a compass. It uses a T-square and
drafting triangles.
