Bending the Axioms—New Geometries
Lecture no. 36 from the course: Geometry: An Interactive Journey to Mastery
Taught by Professor James Tanton | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
Wrap up the course by looking at several fun and different ways of reimagining geometry. Explore the counterintuitive behaviors of shapes, angles, and lines in spherical geometry, hyperbolic geometry, finite geometry, and even taxi-cab geometry. See how the world of geometry is never a closed-book experience.
