Some Applications of Geometric Thinking
Participants in this course will exercise some geometric habits of mind like creating functions that can give insight on a geometric problem, or looking for things that don't change when the inputs of a function change. We'll apply these habits to a wide variety of situations, including geometric optimization and the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra. We will explore some of these topics using dynamic geometry environments.
